Baltimore Area n00b.

Hey guys. I'm just getting back into riding. Haven't been on a bike much since I was a kid (29 now). Got me a road/commuter bike a few weeks ago and I've been putting a good amount of miles in.

Looking to get into trials/street riding. Probably going to get a 24 or 26 inch bike sometime next month.

Anyone in the area ride? I'm in east Baltimore County.


Cheers,

Mat

Sounds good. All I have right now is a Trek road bike. I hope to get a 24 or 26 inch trials bike next month sometime.

Not bad at all. Had a little water come through a leaky window, but noting a towel couldn't fix. Didn't even lose power.

Hopefully you guys got off as easy as I did.

So I got this fella a few weeks ago. Haven't been able to ride it for more that a half an hour at a time until today. Getting more comfortable on it. Trying to get the basics down. Hopefully there will be a group ride soon and I can learn some things. Haha.

2 months later...
I live in Baltimore (Federal Hill) walking/riding distance from the inner harbor. Looking to get back into riding on the weekends on a regular basis. I have a visitor's parking pass for my neighborhood if anyone wants to use it. I'm going to enable email notification for this site so I don't miss any more posts.

Do it!!! By local you mean in the one hour vicinity of Baltimore, right?

I don't know if I'll be riding this weekend. I'm fighting a cold right now. I'll let you guys know.
