Hello and welcome to your both! I'm in Binghamton, but not too far from JC. The west side is really nice to walk/jog too. Lots of nice sidewalks and quiet streets.

Our trails around here are super...Otsiningo, Cheri Lindsay and Vestal Rail-Trail.

Also, if you are on a limited income, consider getting a FREE Bicycle through the Southern Tier Bicycle Project...this is a labor of love of one of our members of the Southern Tier Bicycle Club. He restores donated bicycles and makes them as good as new! Gary's a super guy and I'm so impressed with his wonderful idea as a sideline during his retirement!

Here's their website:

When I lived in manhattan I biked a lot... haven't gotten into it too much here but I'd like to! I might need to steal my bike away from my parents. So far the closest I get to it is the stationary bike in my dining room I've been riding when I watch tv haha. I have heard the couch to 5k program is really good, but at my weight and bad ankles I have to be careful about high impact exercises so I really like the bike and elliptical machines!

I do love long walks through JC/Bing and also in Otsiningo Park.

Hi Leslie,

I live in Johnson City, too! I generally bike, walk, and run, but I'm not super athletic. I like to run on my own- training again for 5K using the couch to 5k plan. I do some biking if you are ever interested. Check out the Southern Tier Bicycle Club for rides: http://southerntierbicycleclub.org . I also go to the Otsiningo Farmers Market Saturday mornings via bike when the weather is nice. Let me know if you are interested. It is a nice ride.

I was just thinking earlier today how it would be nice if there was a Spark Team for people in Binghamton so that I could find more fitness buddies to keep me accountable with my work outs, so imagine my surprise when I saw a past in NY Spark Team about Binghamton Area Losers!

My name is Leslie, I am 23 and I have about 150 lbs to lose or more...let me know if you'd be interested in working out together :)
