Hi all of you, I just joined your forum after clicking on a link to you from another forum I visit daily (except over weekends)
I'm from RSA and started cycling about 2 years ago, I was sort of forced into it by my twin brother who wanted to get himself a new bike and he used me as an excuse. He entered me for The Argus even though I didn't have a bike, he told his wife that I wanted to buy his old bike so he had to get a new one.
I took over his old trek and he got himself a Hybrid (trek)
Sofar I've done the Argus twice, and a couple of other local races.
I'm strictly a recreational rider trying to stay in shape with a MTB that's got road tyres fitted. I had heart surgery 3 years ago so I want to keep in shape.
