Colin from tropical north Queensland

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.

Hi Colin. Welcome to Bike Forums. Not sure how I missed you post till now. You've had quite the cycling history and must have some great stories. Have you found your way to the Touring Forum yet? If not, here's the link:
