I'm Colin Martin and I live at Trinity Beach in tropical north Queensland. Since the day I first explored the country lanes of England 40 years ago on my bike I've always been an avid cyclist. I've ridden around the world on a Moulton bicycle - from England across Europe to Istanbul then across Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan to India, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaya and Singapore. I rode across Australia from Perth to Sydney and from Vancouver to New York City. I've toured in Japan, New Zealand and Indonesia. I try to ride most days although at the moment it is the monsoon season and the torrential rain has brought floods - we've experienced up to 440 mm in 24 hours. I own conventional bicycles but I enjoy the Alex Moulton New Series most of all. The ride is very responsive and suspension adds comfort to long days in the saddle.
I hope to meet other cycle tourists on this forum and share our experiences.
