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.
