    Hello from Brisbane, Australia

    Hello everybody

    I have had cycling forced upon me by my government taking my licence away from me for speeding.

    Even though I work night shift , I am kind of glad it has happened as I have been meaning to exercise for ever but never got around to it.

    Now I have to.

    Unfortunately I start my ride at the bottom of a big hill so buggered by the top but have noticed that even after only a few days my heart is getting stronger and it takes me less time to recover.

    Six months time I will be superfit like I was in my youth

    Good to have yet another Aussie on the forums.

    Welcome.

    Let's hope you choose to stay cycling even after you get your license back.

    Welcome aboard!

    Maybe you'll get a ticket for speeding on your bike... That'll be something and less likely to kill anyone but yourself!

    Welcome aboard, dude! I'm not that far away from you. Incidentally, it's my life-long ambition to get a speeding ticket on my bike!

    Thanks for the welcome.
    It has become a new ambition for me not to get the ticket but to break the limit .
    First day with speedo 57.7 Km per hour next day 58.6 km per hour and yesterday 59 Km per hour.
    Taking a couple of days of now to recover from 20 km rides.

    A.Troll at 100 kilo's I would probably be fairly punny for your taste
