Hello from the UK.
Hi, I came across this forum a while ago but have not posted before. I find it interesting to read the take on cycling that you Americans have.
I'm 55yrs and live in N. Wales UK. I cycle for commuting as well as for pleasure. I sometimes tour with camping equipment. I love the hills round here and can often be found searching for the steepest of them, just for the pleasure of the exercise you understand...
I ride a lovely 531 Carlton Corsa that was handbuilt in 1979, as I only average about three hundred miles a month it is scarcely bedded in yet. It is a light touring frame and is equiped for touring. I also have a Dawes mountain bike for my excursions over rougher terrain than the Carlton likes and a Raleigh mountain bike framed tourer as well.
