Hi! I'm from Adelaide, Australia. I've just started riding and have lots to learn! Right now I'm riding around on the road on my dodgy mountain bike ...and I'll admit it - I rode it most of the way up a big hill today and had to get off and push it the last 100m - lol!! I really enjoy it though (riding, that is - not pushing the bike up the hill). When my riding and climbing abilities get a bit more respectable I'm planning on getting a road bike (because I'm sure it wouldn't be a good look hopping off a proper road bike and pushing it up the hill!!) - and I plan on doing some decent rides over the summer!!

Hello Nic--don't be too bothered about getting off and walking. I have to do that on occasion for various reasons (too much sun/glare will trigger a migraine), not to mention that most of my bikes are either 10 or 12 speeds, and sometimes I just don't have quite the 'oomph' necessary to glide up those hills!
