As an American of mostly Scots, and some English, descent, I always greatly enjoy meeting and hearing from folks in the U.K.

Shortest intro yet


Pie?- Age?- Bike?- Riding?- Pics?

Hiya ukgreyfox/daviddinoz, and welcome to 50+, where we enjoy our cycling against a backdrop of joyous banter!

As I'm sure you've realised by now, we Aussies have perfected the art of pie, turning it into a satisfying meal quite unlike the greasy pork pies you've no doubt encountered many times.



I'm pleased that, as it seems from your blog, you are enjoying your travellings in the land of Oz, and would that I had met you before you passed by my way a while ago. O would have happily accompanied you on a detour to play host at my [url=http://pcpowerplay.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=90377&highlight=slice+heaven]bushland retreat at the eastern end of the Gippsland Lakes system, where life is heavenly

You use the name of FOX, you have to be willing to take the heat.

Have some pie on me.
