After years of wanting a bike to exercise and commute with, I finally—FINALLY—purchased one. Granted, I don’t have classes to go to anymore, I’m looking forward to the eventual commute to and from work. But baby steps—casual fun rides/exercise runs on the gazillion trails that surround me in the D.C. region first.
I bought my bike from a lovely shop on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Md. The staff is awesome. Very friendly, and knowledgeable in bike, bike gear, and area routes. Jen, specifically is phenomenal. If you live in the Silver Spring/Wheaton area and are thinking about bikes, definitely visit their shop.
Got any tips or suggestions for a new cyclist starting out? I’m all ears!… or eyes…?
