Hello from Calgary

Hi everyone. I can't believe it's taken me this long do discover this forum. It has become one of my first destinations when I start surfing. I expect it will become fuel for my bicycle obsession. Thanks in advance for the wealth of info I'm sure I will receive.

Obsession is just the start.

saddle up - Machka has convinced me that I need to get involved in some of these rides too so perhaps we will all get to meet down the road on a ride.

Not sure what to call the type of riding I do. Gave up driving a car about 4 years ago. I live in the city core so I ride as soon as I walk out my door. I love exploring the city on road bikes, lucky to have one of the best bike path systems in North America. Leave my place and ride as far as I can on back roads/single track on a mountain bike then camp over night night and come back home next day. Exploring/Adventure Cycling perhaps? I just love to ride my bikes!!

Saddle up - I have never ridden much in Cowtown but can appreciate the fact you have the second best trail system in North America and would like to check that out someday.
