Hello from Ottawa Ontario!

Hello Bikeforums! I am a middle aged guy who enjoys cycling with my wife on warm summer days or pleasant spring or fall days. We don't ride in winter! We live on the western edge of Ottawa; scenic country roads and the Trans-Canada Trail are just minutes from our home. I have a project lined up for the spring ... it's a circa 1970 Peugeot UE8 which I will clean up and overhaul. It will be my first major "refurbish" of an old bike. I cleaned up an old Bianchi mixte about three or four years ago, but it was in great shape when my wife found it and it didn't need much more than cleaning and polishing. I enjoy the Classics and Vintage Forum and also the Bicycle Mechanics Forum.

Welcome. Actually I wouldn’t ride in winter either if I lived where you do. I usually skip riding if there’s any snow around, even little patches, or there’s any ice. That’s where trainers come in for me.

Welcome!

While I will mostly ride the trainer this time of year, occasionally I will venture out for rides in the winter,
