Hi, I'm Valve Bounce

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and would like to introduce myself. I live in Port Melbourne, Australia. I'm an old geezer and started riding about three years ago when I moved here form Brisbane. I ride an inexpensive Learsport 500 hybrid, and I carry a mongoose (bloody heavy) bike rack on the back and a large bag on it, plus a cable lock, all of which makes my bike even heavier.

I love to ski, hike, I used to sail, and of course I like to ride. As I live very close to Port Philip Bay, I love riding next to the sea.

Cheers.

Hi, Valve_Bounce!

Welcome to BF! One of my late husband's first cousins lives in Melbourne. Lovely place. How can you bloody not keep sailing living where you do? But, hey, if it's a choice between riding and sailing.... Hm...?
