    Hi from Down Under!

    Hi folks, are there many Aussies on here? I'm from Canberra (don't hold that against me...). I enjoy the challenge of longer rides, 100km plus. Greatest distance I've ridden in one session is around 220km (I was pretty stuffed afterwards!). I ride mostly with my local club called, strangely enough, Pedal Power. Any other PPs here?

    Cheers Ross
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Hi Ross and welcome to BikeForums.
    I'm not an Aussie but you'll find lots of them here.

    Hi Ross:

    Welcome to the forums. I'm from AZ but have noticed quite a few of you "down under" folks in the forum.

    Welcome to the forums from a fellow Aussie.

    I'm from Perth but I've cycled across to Canberra a couple of times.

    We did it in five weeks. We weren't out to break any records but we had some fairly long days.

    It is unreal to see so many aussies on this forum and another person from Canberra, how cool is that. I have just taken up road cycling again and I am thinking of joining Pedal Power also.
