I'm Bruce from Birmingham, England. Originally from Austin, TX, USA but married an English girl and the rest is history. I ride with my cycling club and like to do Audax (Brevet/Radonneur) rides. Just got a GPS for Xmas and trying to figure it out. Hopefully, there'll be some pointers on the forum.
I have a reynolds 853 tourer (Dawes) but finding it a bit slow for the fast club rides. So, I've ordered a titanium frame and hope I can better keep pace with the young kids. I'm an old goat at 58 but not quite ready for the back 40. I just pop the ibuprofen to keep my dodgy knees a going.
We (Mrs BruceH & I) belong to "Warm Showers" - it's an organization that provides hospitality for touring cyclists. So if you're biking thru central England we'll put you up for the night in our spare bedroom. There's quite a few of us here and in Europe. It's big in the States too. We just had a couple a few weeks ago from Juneau, Alaska stay with us. Just google warm showers if interested.
This looks like a massive collection of cyclists. So I guess I'll start reading some of the threads and see if I can learn something. All the best to everyone for the New Year!
