Hi from London
Hi, I'm Karl. I've been riding bikes for quite a few years but got a road bike only couple of years ago (not counting the one I had when I was 16) and been using it mostly to keep sane and keep fit. I used to hate hills and mountains but now I love them - for the challenge. Just wish we had some higher ones in the south of England.
I don't race and only taken part in one sportive. Not that I mind riding with other people, but do find it great to be out and about, just focusing on riding and the scenery.
