    Hello!

    Hi everyone, my name is Brian. I'm 54, live in Edmonton, Canada and am getting back into Bike Touring. I stopped riding 7-8 years ago(Divorce, raising 4 daughters)and the bug is back! I'm taking all of August 2014 off and doing Edmonton to Vancouver...2015 Pacific Coast. In 6 years I will retire and plan on Touring the World. It's a ways away but I am so excited! Now I just have to figure out if I want to do it solo or find a partner. Anyways, looking forward to meeting some of you guys(and gals!) on the Forum.

    Welcome aboard

    Be sure to post pics of your rig in the various "pics of your ____" threads (most are stickied) around the site.

    Welcome to Bike Forums! You know, we do have a regional forum here and maybe you might want to post about your plans for future touring. Who knows....over time you might meet some of the locals and perhaps even find a riding partner for your trip!

    Welcome aboard, I'm sure you will find lots of friendly people here and also some great bike related knowledge. I would love to get out and bike but bad knees from driving transport for so long. So now I just fix bikes and give them to churches and those I feel would appreciate one but don't have the money. That's my hobby I guess.
