Newbie on Guernsey

Hello everyone. I live on Guernsey in the U.K. Channel Islands.
At last I have reached the finishing line and retired last week. A little early as planned.
Been cycling non competitively for many years and now with time available will be getting some miles logged.
Carbon Cube Agree road bike, aluminium MTB, one of the last from Raleigh's UK lightweight division and finally
A Tourer. This is made from from 531 tubing built by Orbit cycles in Yorkshire. Just extensively refurbished by Orbit who supplied it 31 years ago. Still bedding the components in and getting used to the many new items they incorporated into the build. Only original parts are the saddle, seat post and frame.
Starting to plan a ride covering the Wild Atlantic Way Ireland for next year. All tips welcome if you or someone you know has done some or all of it.
Looking forward to using this forum and site. Ride on !
Bob.

Happy trails Rob, and welcome to bikeforums. That's a pretty solid stable of bikes you have there!

You need 10 posts before you can post a picture.

Hi Ron. Thanks, I had read that rule. While my post count builds I was looking where I get the picture URL from on my Mac or I pad. Fun finding these things out.
Regards, Bob.
