Intro

Hey.

I'm currently a mechanical engineer but have been: Bike mechanic; fork truck driver; racing driver (unfortunately not professionally); swimming teacher; driving instructor for learners, the Police, and at Silverstone; dance teacher (Jive); civil engineer; quality engineer (BMW Mini) amongst other things. I'm newly 38 years old (last Sunday), I live in sin with my better half Cindy and her two lads.

I ride an On-One Inbred with XT, Crossride hoops, Easton carbon bar, Juicy5 brakes. I want to rediscover my early jump form, and am in the process of buying a BMX (Federal Foundation) so I don't trash my 'grown-up' (Ha!) bike.

I enjoy riding XC, trail centres, and would also like to have a go at the Alps or Whistler (in my dreams!)

I am also looking for riding buddies in my local area (Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England) to keep company on local and trail centre rides.

Glad to be a part of this community, looking forward to posting stuff here.

I'm not certain how many members are in Oxfordshire...but there must be a couple. It sounds as if you have had quite a few different life experiences! Hope you can find some partners here for your rides.

Welcome to BF!
