Bikes over cars... FTW!


I am new, and pleased to join such a clearly vibrant online forum, about a topic which is close to my heart.

I recently moved back to rural Gloucestershire (UK), from London, after years of working in the exciting yet stagnant metropolis.

But after moving back, rather than throw money away on a car, I have been delighted to be able to embrace a new bicycle.

Well, I say new. I could never cope with the anxiety of owning a new bicycle. My 'new' bike very much second hand (or third, or fourth, probably!) but it is new to me. Which is what counts!

I love cycling, and living off my own steam. And I look forward to discussing the passion of cycling more with everyone!

Best wishes one and all...

Good Choice!! Been carfree for 12 or more years. I live and work in the city so it's not like I have a 20 mile ride on the expressway to get to work - I'd need a car for that. Welcome welcome - this is a huge forum with many avenues for your interest (steering towards the commuting and carfree forums ...)

And have fun out there!
