Newbie from Shropshire England

Hi

I'm fairly new to this cycling lark, late bloomer so to speak, but have fallen in love with it, even though I've fallen off a few times and sporting a lovely wrist splint at the moment. I prefer to ride in a group rather than on my own, can easily ride 60kms (30miles). would rather me on my bike than sitting in a office on a sunny friday afternoon. Plan of action for weekend is to change my pedals to clipless ones, so need to get the right tools first. Have a great weekend :-)

Welcome,

No need for special tools to change pedals, you'll get way with using a thin adjustable spanner.

Good luck.

My wife and I have been to Shropshire. We stayed overnight in Shrewsbury which we thought was a lovely town. We enjoyed being silly by saying 'Shrewsbury in Shropshire" with our fake and exaggerated English accents. It's all good. We live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Say that with an accent like in the movie Fargo.
