Hello from Saskatoon

I am just getting back into riding my bike after taking a year off (not sure why I did that just sort of happened).

I am going to be commuting to work (only 3.5 km - about 1.6 miles) and have enjoyed lurking here reading what everyone has to say and the tips have been great.

In Saskatoon we go from -40 C to +40 C (not sure on conversion to F) through out the year, so we will have to see when it becomes winter whether or not I will still commute or not.

My main goal is to let my wife use the car (we have a 4 year old), get some exercise and lose some weight (about 40-50 lbs).

I thought it was about time I stopped lurking around and actually contributed to what makes this fourm so great.

Hey locole! Welcome! I lived in Saskatoon for a a couple of months before planting trees north of Meadow Lake. Pretty windy out there... know why?

Cheers!

Welcome locole

I have a special fondness for Saskatoon. That is where I was conceived. Then moved in transit via rail and born in Vancouver. Visited once back in '68 or '69.

Wish I only had 3.5 km to commute.

Saskatoon....which reminded me of the Guess Who song by the same name....I hear it's a lot like Anchorage, Alaska. Which I lived for 3 years.

Welcome to the forum...will you be plugging in during the winter months?
