Welcome to the Team and kudos to the new bike!

I'm always reading about AWESOME rides out on the Island that I wish I had the $$ to join in on!

Such as the Ride to Montauk: www.ridetomontauk.com/Ride_to_Montau

There is also a Long Island Bike Club! www.bicyclelongisland.org/

Looking forward to hearing about your adventures on two wheels! :-)

Hey everyone, my name is Katie. I am new to both this forum and cycling.

I had been using a Trek bike that was given to me by my boyfriends mother. Being that she is 5'10 and I am 5'2, the bike was so large it was nearly impossible to ride comfortably. It also did not suit the things I wanted to do, it was more of a comfort cruiser style bike with a huge cushy seat. I wanted to go long distances, get speed and obviously get a bike that fit me.

Well, I went to my LBS and tried out some models, and after talking with the shop owners for a while and riding the ones I liked several times I walked out with a Scott Metrix.

Riding has been 10x more enjoyable with a bike suited to me and my needs.

I am still very much a beginner, and hope to learn more from the people on this forum :)
