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.

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.
