great white north says hello!!

Hello,
I have been reading the forum for awhile now and have decided to join up fellow cyclists.
I live across the street from Detroit, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and am a vintage road bike-type guy.
I ride all year round and have at least three bikes in various states of operation. My fave is my MIELE Condor...

Welcome. You're a sturdier rider than most people riding year round in Canada.

Welcome aboard Boom, glad to have you here with us. Riding year round in your location is impressive, as said above. Make yourself at home.

As far as Canada goes Windsor Ontario is pretty far South. It is further South than fifteen U.S. States, including a part of Northern California. My Geography lesson for the Day.
