As we say here in Switzerland. Been lurking for a good while, and made the odd post but never got round to the introductions. It was me that introduced Obelix67 to this most hallowed of portals, about about time I introduced myself.
As the moniker might suggest I'm Swiss (the names not Tim though, that's a slang term for a supporter of the wonderful institution that is Celtic Football Club). Live in Zurich, and am something of an überclyde - 6', 436lb (damn that sounds a lot when you convert it). I am however blessed with an abundance of the two qualities that all clydes need - brute force and ignorance.
Changed my lifestyle a couple of years back - decided that dying wasn't really all that it's cracked up to be - and cycling has been a key part of it. So much so that I'm giving up my job as a translator to retrain as a bike mechanic.
Pretty much at the high-end of my weight range at the moment following a gnarly winter, but back on the straight and narrow and got plans for some serious trips this year.
Just got myself a new bike - a modded-up Kona Hoss, with some added extras courtesy of the good lads at my local bike shop. Here's a wee pic, and a pic of me doing what I like best
