New rider from Victoria

Hello all, I'll make this short and sweet since I'm at work. I recently bought a used Giant Nutra to commute back and forth to work, about a 20 km ride each way. I'm hoping to get back into shape after years of letting myself slip into the abyss. I will be making great use of the Clydesdales section I'm sure ! I haven't ridden a bike since I got my driver's license at 16 so we're looking at 20 years but like the old saying it would appear as though I haven't forgotten how to ride because my first time out I was having a blast like a youngster all over again.

I'm glad I found this site and I hope to gain inspiration and knowledge from all of you, thanks!

Hello mrchristie49, it looks as if you have already scoped out the Clydesdales/Athenas forum. Those folks over there are an inspiration to many of us, even those who are not Clydes/Athenas. What's your commute like? It must be fantastic to commute in Victoria (although a bit intimidating considering the sheer numbers of tourists ).

Welcome to BF!
