Welcome Lee. Bucks County is a wonderful area for riding, both on the road and for mountain biking. I hope you enjoy it!

Welcome!

I am north of you in WIlkes-Barre, but have been on one road ride in your area. It was a very nice ride.

Enjoy the forum!

Hello Lee, what brought you to the United States? And what do you miss most about home?

Welcome to BF!

That's the best reason in the world to move halfway around the planet .

It could be tough enough to adapt to the more frenetic attitude of the US, but I know that the weather will be...interesting...for you .

Welcome to the forums, Lee. My missus is a Novocastrian (go The Knights!) and I lived in Newcastle for 3 years, so I feel your pain when it comes to the weather.

Cheers,

Brian
