Hello form the uk

Name is Graeme im form the uk (widnes) im 22 i own 3 bikes.
1 muddy fox that I use for spare parts as the frame is twisted.
1 Scott Yecora my main off road bike.
1 Custom Racer don't use that often after as i don't like cars. but good for commuting.
I am lucky enough to live less that a mile for the trans pennine trail www.transpenninetrail.org.uk good riding all canals, rivers and nature reserves well for at least 30 miles then you get into cities. I try to ride at least 100miles per week.

Hello Graeme. Wow, you are most fortunate that you can get onto the Trans-Pennine trail easily, I would love to be back in Lancashire to ride that. What canals are you riding, and what nature reserves do you hit?

By the way, I was born in Swinton...

Welcome to BF!

Have you seen any animals or birds of interest at Pickerings Pasture? It sounds fascinating.
