I've been biking, on and off, for as long as I can remember although I'm currently not very 'bike fit' and am not a bike 'techie'. I have a 20 year old Peugeot Comete road bike and a Marin Muirwoods for off-roading.

I love the freedom and the fresh air and although I drive a motorbike and a car I'd love to see a resurgence in pedal bike usage.

Am recently back from a trip to New Zealand where I cycled the Lake Tekapo Bike Race
(http://www.mtbpursuits.com/MTBeventRun79.htm) and the Otago Rail Trail (http://www.otagorailtrail.co.nz/). Three days cycling and I met only one other person on the trail and that was a pregnant shepherdess with her two sheepdogs. It was winter time though.

Happy cycling!
