North Atlanta Rider

Hey all,

Just letting the board know there's a new rider here in the N. Atlanta area. I am near Kennesaw/Cartersville area. I just started riding. I will be taking the new riders course at north metro tech this weekend (unless we are rained out for the road stuff). I've been riding all of about 4 days now. I took a longer ride this weekend (about an hour) and enjoyed it. I did learn quickly I do not have good cold gear!

Look forward to hearing from and learning from other riders out there.

Thanks!

Welcome! I'm over in Athens. I took a ride this weekend myself and decided I needed some new gear. I just started riding this spring so I'm learning about how to enjoy a cold weather ride.

Welcome to the forum. I live in Jacksonville, Ala. I lived in the Kennesaw area back in the late 70's. We rode over to the mountain earlier this year,,,things sure have changed!

Glad to meet another rider. I picked up a balaclava and it worked great this morning at 32 degrees. Freeze out is the brand. I also picked up some thicker gloves, but the hard portion on the knuckles caused pain on the ride. I am going to take 'em back and try something new.

Some cheap long johns from Walmart are working to keep the legs warm. I think I will back off on rain for now. However, not this weekend. I have my safety course this weekend and they ride rain or shine. lol

We've lived here for a number of years and it keeps getting busier. Once I have been in the bike a bit and have my full license (hopefully this weekend from the safety course) I want to ride into AL. I love taking country roads and AL looks like an awesome place to find some.

Give a holler if you are going to head this way. There is a road about five miles from my house that is about 5 miles long and it is curvy. Then we could head up to Mt Cheaha on Al-281. It is a great ride.

Will do. It's something I'd like to do in the spring.
