Hello. I've looked at your site for some time and often found it useful in conjunction with other sources so thought I'd join and show 'my ride' and hopefully ask some questions if and when I get stuck.
As a non-rider for roughly 10 years I found getting back into cycling a big learning curve for choosing the right gear and setting the bike up how I wanted it. I try and do all maintenance on the bike, but give it to the local bike shop when I don't have the time.
I picked up a Trek FX7.3 about a year ago and have covered over 400 miles on it since fitting the measuring device. I became a bit wimpy over winter so I've only started using it again in the last few weeks.
I'm limited to 2-3h rides, but love doing longer ones when I have the time.
Since buying the bike I've added some mud guards, rear pannier rack (not fitted in this picture), spd pedals and cycle computer.
I'm not the fastest thing on the road, but love it all the same. I hope to do longer rides as my fitness returns and after obtaining a front pannier rack I hope to not only use the bike for trips such as shopping where to my shame I still hop in the car even though I could as easily cycle it and also overnight stops covering many more miles.
Anyway, you may or may not see me much on the forums, but it seems like a good source of information.
