Introductions - hello everyone
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm a Finnish girl from the Northern Europe. I have always been intrested in bikes and especially now because I'm investing in a new one. I don't have that many friends (not yet!) who would be that intrested in bikes as I am.
I thought that you might be intrested in my home country which offers very extreme conditions as what it comes to riding a bike. This is what we call the Northern part of Finland (http://www.laplandfinland.com/select_language.asp) . Notice the mountain biking activities ;)
And here are some more material (http://virtual.finland.fi/) . I think that the best part is the picture gallery :)
The best in biking is to go fast and feel yourself free !!!

Welcome to the forums.
It looks like Lapland has some great mountain biking.
How long is the summer cycling season?
Cool to se someone else from the cold north on the forum.
Let me know if you manage to coax more of your friends into biking as I'm trying to do the same:-)
Hi anna, welcome to bike forum.
Thank you all so much for welcoming me. You are all so friendly!
It's nice to hear that you liked the pictures on the websites.
ChipRGW True I'm not finnishing ;) --->
Bikedud The summer season is just about getting started here. There was no snow last week but what happened during the weekend :mad: There's plenty of snow again. The cycling season takes from April to September - October if we're lucky.
norgie How long is the summer cycling season there? Good luck to you too with the coax effort :)

Hyvaa Paivaa Anna,
Welcome to bike forum! I've been to your beautiful country with its thousands of lakes. Must be nice to have a sauna after a long bike ride. My favourite area was Kuopio where I met so many nice people and had such a nice time in 1971. Uksi olut, kiitos! (One beer please)

Great Pictures - I went for my first ride of the season on 1 April but on Saturday we had about 10 cm of snow, and it is going down to -10C at night time. I visiited Aland in 1966, but I would love to see more of your beautiful country. There are a few other members of the forum from Helsinki - have you met them?
AndrewP: not yet, she hasn't. But here goes.
Moi, Anna, mukavaa saada lisää suomalaisia tälle palstalle.
Tervetuloa / Welcome!
Hi gonesh9, kitsilano1967, AndrewP and Juha! And thanks to you too for the welcomes. :)
gonesh9 - I'm considering to buy a mountain bike but I'm still comparing few options.
kitsilano - Hyvää päivää sinullekin! You know the facts... ;)
And AndrewP - It seems like you had the same situation with the snow there. Here's getting warmer again, now it's +6C :D
Juha - Moikka! Mukavaa, kun on muitakin "heimolaisia" täällä. Kiva foorumi :)
It's nice to know that you're interested in Finland. Maybe you could travel here sometimes.
