Newbie from Buckinghamshire UK. Hello!!!

Hi everyone,

I thought i'd do the done thing and introduce myself. I'll make it brief though, don't panic!!!

I am 25 years old, and have recently fallen in love with all things cycling related (including triathlons). That isn't to say my skill/fitness/knowledge matches my enthusiasm, but after reading some of the threads on here, i hope i can go some way to changing that!

Anyway, i have just spotted a thread on smoking which i feel obliged to comment on (having smoked for 8 years)

Hope to see you on the forums.

Joe

Welcome trimonkey! You've come to the right place to get information on cycling and how to spend every spare penny on it. Hope you quit smoking cuz your cig money's just wasted bike parts.

I smoked for 15 years and gave up 8 years ago. I've probably saved about £5,000+ which is more than enough to pay for my bikes. Probably.

When people quit smoking they usually take up more repulsive habits . . . . like bragging.

Smoking is pretty repulsive. I can't wait 'til they ban in from pubs and restaurants here.

We don't want to move this to P&R, do we?

I'm going to go contemplate over a cigarette.
