I'm at uni, in London, Kensington, but home is either Bristol or West Lancs depending on when you ask me.

Definately a road bike (an ancient raleigh) for London, but tend to stick to my early 90's style mountain bike (ie no suspension) for everywhere else when I can, don't like dragging the road bike up hills/along non-surfaced cycle paths (although I have done it in the past)

I was wondering if any of the BF members from the UK could tell me if Pearson Cycles ships to the US. I really like their new Pearson Touche' fixed cycle.

Just moved to Grove Park, SE London right next to Bromley, Kent. I ride to work (Mayfair, Central London) everyday. Usually do 70 mile rides once a month. Need information on good hills to ride within the M25 area.... And anyone who wants to come along would be welcome.

For MTBing in Brum you just need to go a few miles to the North and you'll find Cannock Chase, 8miles of offical single track, much more unofficial and a downhill area.

If you want more info PM or email me.
