Hello from Northern Ireland

glad to make your acquaintance .

Im from northern ireland , I ride a Ventura Aluminium hybrid with 700 x 25mm continental ultra gatorskin tyres , I also use shimano SBD cleated shoes and shimano matching pedals. I average 17-18 mph which im sure is nowhere near what some of you guys do but I have relapsing and remitting Multiple Sclerosis and unfortunately have to respect the limits my body places upon me . I am 38 by the way and married with 2 gorgeous young girls .

well thats me...........look forward to gaining further cycling knowledge from a forum such as this .....cheers.

Jimmy

Welcome. Good to have you. Aside from the usual BS. this is overall a good forum with much information and camaraderie. Also, now we know who to look up should we ever visit N. Ireland.

Theres always a head wind
It's always the rear tire
Theres always something in the curve

Hello Jimmy, I think that if you are managing to do as well as you are with MS we will certainly not find fault here, but rather, kudos!

I hope that the MS progression is very slow, and that your symptoms are resolved when in remittance?

Welcome to BF!

Hello Jimmy and welcome! You sound very quick -- much faster than me. Do you ride with a club? There are loads of them about, if you are near a big town or city.

Hello Jimmy. Welcome aboard.
There is an old geezer called Sheldon Brown with a Phenominal website about all things bicycling. He also happens to have MS. If you would like, you could start out at this page.
https://www.sheldonbrown.org/journal/health.html

Besides the fascinating reading on his website, I'm sure the two of you would have much to discuss.
