Hello from the UK (North West)
Another returning biker here - In my youth (rather more years ago than I care to think) I cycled everywhere - holidays to the north of Scotland, right round Ireland - glorious times.
But then like so many others I just stopped.
A few years ago I had a go at getting back into cycling but for some reason it never worked, BUT this time it will - I've bought a Giant CRS3 hybrid, done a few miles on it over the last week or two and found this site - very inspiring - so taking the advice on the 50+ forum I'll be doing my best to ride frequently and build up to some reasonable distances.
Main off-putting factor so far - the volume of traffic on the roads near me
