    Nothing too special - a Globe Sport, I think it's called. It's a hybrid.

    Hi from Dundalk, Ireland.

    Hello!

    I belonged to this forum a while back, but let my membership lapse as I didn't do that much cycling with my old clunker of a rusty mountain bike. I now have a shiny new Globe Sport hybrid (if I have the technical details wrong there, forgive me, I'm not that clued up with biking stuff), and I'm enjoying it immensely.

    Let my location not fool you, I'm a South African. I've lived in Ireland for three years now.

    Glad to be back.

    Nadia.

    Hello Nadia! First, do you have a supply of biltong? And second, what kind of riding do you do mostly? Streets, a bit of offroad, or?

    Welcome back to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

    Hey, East Hill.

    No, my motto for staying happy in Ireland is to deliberately not hanker after what I left behind. So no biltong, though if my arm was twisted I'd say that's what I miss most.

    As for biking, I do enough to impress my non-biking friends but keep quiet about my 'achievements' among fellow bikers! I only do road biking, not adventurous enough for offroading. I go for a nice cycle from Dundalk outwards, usually north, every Sunday. Distances are usually around 80km per day trip, though I recently broke the 100km in a day barrier and since went further than that twice. Once on a trip to Armagh (115km), the other when I cycled to Portadown and back along the Newry Canal Towpath (112km). I also did a four day trip through Northern Ireland shortly after getting the new bike, and that was awesome.

    You can read more about my biking adventures on my blogger blog - http://nadia-thinks.blogspot.com

    More about you?

    Nadia.

    I had a great time reading your blog--I was especially impressed with your multi-day trip. I have never gone on such a journey--but I should!

    As for me, take a look at my link for the Vintage Bike Liberation Front. That shows all of my bicycles except for one.

    Welcome, Nadia, very cool blog! I had a great time riding around County Clare on my own last summer.

    Ireland is ideal biking country, I think. Never been to Co. Clare. I should go as soon as I can.
