Greetings from Estonia

Hi all. I'm 18yrs old student, located in Eastern Europe. I've found a lot of useful information about choosing new hybrid bike, but I yet have to make final decision. My other hobbies include digital photography, going to movies and travelling.

Cu!

Welcome! I hope you find all the information you need here.
There can be many interesting things to photograph while riding your bike - I've resorted to taking mine with me almost every day now...
So happy riding and photographing!!!

Teretulemast, it's nice to have new members from this part of the world. Where in Estonia are you?

One of my recurring touring dreams is to start from Tallinn, cycle South through Estonia and then further, maybe to Riga, continue with ferries to Gotland (Visby is great!), mainland Sweden and the Aland islands, then cycle back home. Maybe next summer...

Welcome to the Forum. I agree. Cycling and photography have a natural affinity. Do you have an images you'd like to share?

Welcome MelesMeles, glad you found this forum, I too always fancied cycling in your country, I actually wanted to do the whole region and spend more than 2 weeks at it but I guess I will have to be content with 2 weeks. What are you studying ? . There is plenty of information on this forum on just about everything to do with cycling and if you do not find what you are looking for then just pop the question on a thread and you will get a wealth of feedback. Saved me plenty of money on trying & testing.

Thanks for warm welcome, JoeLonghair, Blackberry, Juha (Kiitos), Noif666

I was somewhat aware that my region is attracting bikers, but didnt know that there are so many.. I'm located in northern Estonia, just 20km away from Tallinn. Currently I'm at 11th grade, so will graduate next year. I've got no idea what to do after that, but trying to figure it out I'm looking forward to bike trip in Finland, maybe this summer, right after I've learned some Finnish

I haven't got web page for my photos yet, but on one day... Here are few links directly to pics

Park at night, Bee, Beach

Will upload some more soon..

Cu.

Class pics my man, I can see that you are into photography, its strange really, some one mentioned that cycling & photography go hand in hand, which is true cause since I got into cycling I bought a digital camera and have started taking pictures, started out of picture with friends camping out etc and now I am looking at the lense from a photographer's eye, the kind of shots you do. You know when you go on holiday in Finland you can post your travells in the travel log section of this site for all to share.
