I'm just getting back into cycling in a moderate way after too many years of neglect. As a teenager I did triathlons on my Velosport Jocelyn Lovell bike -which I'm just trying to fix up now. I also commuted winter and summer for years on a Fisher Montare - although I never did do much offroad riding on it. Years later, my wife and I did our first bike tour across China, me on a Trek 5000 - which was handy, since we encountered some rough terrain in some stretches. Now it's back to occasional commuting, and perhaps getting back into a few duathlons or triathlons on my Velosport - if I can find a few parts that I need!
Look forward to sharing experiences with everyone here!
Thanks for the welcome.
I'm near High Park in Toronto.
I sometimes go for weekend morning road rides with a few friends - usually straight up Leslie from Eglinton. Otherwise, it's commuting - but I do most of my work from home now.
How about you?
China was a very cool experience by the way - a great place for cycling, since other users of the road are so accustomed to cyclists and other non-motorized vehicles, and there are bike lanes all over the place. Of course, big cities are becoming more and more car-centric, which is a shame..
