Introductions - Kiwi in Canada says Hi
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.
Glad to join this group - I need all the help I can get! I come from a running background (forever) and started triathlons about 4 years ago on my trusty 20-year old 10-speed (with mudguards; I think i took off the carrier ;-)) and qualified for Worlds! So that hooked me. Besides, a little less wear and tear on the old joints on the bike and the swim...except for the few falls on the shoulders when I decided to get clip-ins. So this year I am training really hard because, well, you never get any younger do you! And it's all down hill from where I'm looking. I do Olympic distance duathlons and triathlons. I signed up to do a Half IM this year, just because.... I think it's because I have this death wish, I mean, Death Race I was thinking of doing so why not try a longer triathlon first? It's in Lake Steven's WA - looks like a great course. (I notice that one of the moderators lives nearby...). Anyway, greetings all. Happy cycling.
Forgot to mention that I have, besides my Apollo 10-spd, a heavy rusty commuter MTB for winter-driving, and a Trek 2000 mit SRM for tri/road biking.

East Hill (our official greeter)must be off playing with Mr East Hill so as deputy greeter I will say, Welcome to Bike Forums !
It looks like you will find many little rooms here to play in since you seem to have some wide cycling interests.

Thanks Sixty Fiver! I was not playing :( , I was working :mad: ...
K1W1, could we get some photos of the Apollo in the Classic & Vintage forum? We love seeing those photos of older bikes :D .
Lake Stevens is a beautiful area, should be nice for a longer first triathlon! Do you live in Vancouver, then?
Welcome to BF!
No I am in Edmonton. Just had our first outdoor ride of the season last weekend. It's a long winter here.....

You will have to stop by Bikeworks to say hi to the guy who rides the funny little fixed gear bike.

EH - We may have already met as Kiwi says she and her hubby dropped some bikes off at our shop a few months ago.
An Edmonton BF meet and greet is certainly in order.
