I'm an African in England

Hi I'm from South Africa, living in the U.K. My cycling is resticted mainly to the road. I enjoy it very much. I have tried my hand at downhill cycling at Whistler in Canada. It was great fun!!!! I have a few mates that are seriously into it and are really good at what they do. I would defnitely try it again.

I own a specialized hybrid cycle that is HUGE. It's like a great big grey horse...just right for my height. I unfortunately dont treat it that well at times, and should pay closer attention to small niggly problems.

Feel free to contact me for whatever!

Rich

Hi Rich. I lived in South Africa for about 2 years-- Grahamstown, Fort Beaufort, Cape town. Where did you live when you where there?

Well African, I'm a Paddy living in "Tan land" as we call it. I thought the post was going to be about the brothers in the UK. Is there any "amateur" postings for a guy approaching middle age who tries (most days) to cycle to work to fight the "battle of the bulge" ( no historical/political connotations here!)?
