    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! There are lots of Aussies here on the forums, I'm sure you'll fit right in. Welcome to the Forums!
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    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...?
