    Hello!

    Just a quick hello from me!

    Used to love cycling back home in Quebec because I was always on cycle paths, going to work through forests, past lakes and stuff..

    Here, I haven't cycled in 5 years because I live up a hill in wales, the roads are narrow, no cycling path and it's all a bit too crazy for me.

    But, I've decided to reduce my car commute by parking my bike in work in flat Cheshire where I will commute between different stations and to the gym.

    I'm also thinking about cycling in the loire valley with Exodus and buying a bike rack for when we go camping.

    So yeah, I'm here to learn, chat and just vent my excitement!

    Indeed! Lymm is a lovely little town--I had some excellent walks around the dam and along the canal when I last visited.

    There's a baseball academy in Lymm ? Who would have thought....where's it located?

    Welcome, welcome! I love it when people rediscover how much fun a bicycle is. I'm a total commuter here and even though I use my one bike as a workhorse, I have other bikes that I keep for more roadriding fun (bicycles, btw, are a disease, as I have a bike in the basement that I haven't done anything with, yet bought to be a commuter - but will most likely purchase another bike so I can take the mtb and add some parts and, and ....

    Welcome!!!
