My Name is Matt, i'm from North London in the UK, just wanted to say hello, i've been cycling for a year now, a commuting cyclyst who has started to take his cycling a little more serious, hence decicing to join the forum.
Currently Riding a Specialized Allez Sport and looking to upgrade soon, i will be looking for advice on another thread soon on that.
Well here i am, i'm in, threaded and introduced and looking forward to getting to know and share ideas from cyclists around the world.
Thanks all, i'm quite lucky as i can keep my bike in my office, i work in west London where there are quite a few bike areas, so you can lock your bike up with many other bikes but as always a good lock is needed and lock your tyres and if your saddle is quick release take it with you.
As for shops i tend to use Cycle Surgury near my work and near my house, they are a bit genreric but handy for location, for central London bike shops again you will find the usual Evans and Cycle Sugury but you can find them anywhere, although i don't spend that much time in central London i believe that Condor Cycles is a very good shop and well worth a visit. Enjoy.
