Hello from British Columbia!

My name is Bradley and I am 46.
I am relatively new to road biking but did an event in Montana five years ago called Cino Heroica and it got under my skin. I badly broke my leg last year in a motorcycle fall down incident and couldn’t walk on it for three months. All I wanted to do was ride a bike so I built an old Norco I had, in the winter, and started riding on a trainer then on the road in early March. I have since bought a Surly Midnight Special and ride 40 to 60k a week and love it. I have tinkered with old bikes on and off for years, and I love that too.
Looking forward to joining this forum!
Thanks!

Broken leg

Thanks for the greetings!
My broken leg was a real motivator to ride bikes again. Silver linings and all!
