My name is Jessie and I am in the process of moving to San Francisco from southern California. I am originally from Toronto and have lived all over the Western States in the last 6 years.
I just got a new environmentally focused job in San Francisco and I couldn't be more excited! I love this city and I am going to be able to bike to work, what could be better! I have a 8 - 12 mile ride depending on whether I take the ferry or the golden gate bridge to Mill Valley. But the one problem is that I need a new bike.
In the past few months I have been bitten by the bike bug. I have been riding with a friend who races but I have been using my mountain bike (with road tires) and I am ready to upgrade to a road bike. I am planning to get fitted as soon as I move up but I am 5'3" and looking for a used bike in the $500 - $1000 range. So if you have a bike you want to sell or know of a good spot to look for used bikes in the Bay area please let me know!
Also if anyone is interested in going for a ride sometime, I am always up for a ride and can't wait to explore the bay area routes!
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
