    Hello desperion, we have several members in Scotland. What part are you in? And, more importantly, what are you riding?

    Hi eveyone, thanks for the great welcome !

    Yes, Scotland is a nice place to ride, but only when you've found your feet (or should that be pedals), which I have yet to do.

    My first flight was on a baby tricycle when I went over the handlebars losing part of two of my newly formed adult front teeth - I've never looked back since - LoL

    I have a Dawes Galaxy 2007 with 27 gears and bar shift gear change, with Ortlied 9ltr bar bag and Ortlieb 20ltr Roll Top panniers.

    I had a bike computer which I bought in Aldi's for about 12.00 but I have taken that off to make room for my bar bag and i think I shall simply use my Garmin Vista HCx GPS system instead.
