Greetings from southwest Ireland
Hello to all, I'm new to this forum and looking forward to reading your stories, thrills, spills, and woes. I've been cycling seriously for about 23 years. In the early 1990's, I worked in an excellent bike shop in Arlington Heights, IL called Bikes Plus while going to grad school. My family and I have been living in Ireland for seven years now and loving it. My wife and I still have to pinch ourselves when we get out on the road here - taking in the beauty of this amazing island. For the last nine years, I have been a roadie, but also rode mtb's before too. Favourite ride ever - March 2004 - Capetown, South Africa- largest bike race in the world - 27,000 riders - The Argus.
