Hi from New Zealand

Only just started cycling again after 40 years. During that break the bikes have got lighter and faster and I've got heavier and slower. This seems like a good place to get to know bikes again. I hope so. Cheers.

Welcome to Bike Forums. 40 years? Glad you found your way back to cycling. Does that mean you're over 50? If so stop by the 50+ forum and say hello. I hang out there a lot. I'm 69.

Welcome. My wife has relatives on the south island and I had the opportunity to visit and do a bit of cycling a while ago. Quite a while ago, in fact. What gorgeous country; I hope to return one day.

+1 on the 50+ forum, it's the place to be.

Where in NZ are you? I've got family scattered over a fair bit of the North Island.
