Hi all-

I'm 34 and newly into biking (well, back into it from when I was a child). Got my road bike a little over a month ago. Yesterday I did a 40 mile sponsored ride and really enjoyed it.

Typically I've been driving my bike into the city for "long" rides on the closed off West River Drive in Philly, but know I need to get out there more than on the weekends. I'm not brave enough to ride alone on the open roads, yet. Between worrying about the cars and worried that I wouldn't do well changing my flat by myself...you get the idea.

I know the season is almost over, but also planning for next Spring. Trying to find someone near me who would like to bike early evening or on the weekends as well. Typically on the flats I can do 17-19 mph comfortably. Obviously, hills are a little slower. Longest ride thus far has been 40 miles although my usual weekend rides are about 32 miles as well.
