Another Hello!

Hi everyone.

My name's Matt and I err... like cycling

Long story short; me and a few mates cycled 1900 miles from London to Barcelona and back this summer (www.bikeeurope.org.uk for full details) and it was one the greatest things ever! So we're doing it again soon but somewhere else this time...

Anywho... I ride about 4 or 5 miles a day, to college and back and occasionally I'll do 30 or 40 of a Sunday. I'll be doing more as the weather picks up.

I ride a Bianchi Camaleonte III Tiagra and it's bloody nice! Pics to come (is there a special place here to post 'em, or what?)

Thanks for reading... I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty of me around here in future.

Hello Matt, you can post photos of the Bianchi here--it'll get you some practice which is always nice. Then when you figure out where you feel comfortable, there's usually a place for 'post your rig' so you can share there too!

Welcome to BF!

I like the chainring on that! Anyway, you have successfully passed the photo posting test. What part of London are you in?

Where do you go cycling there? It looks a great mass of exact duplicate houses.

(you'd be surprised how many people don't know how to post photos ).

Yeah, it is just your typical urban wasteland round here. If i'm doing a seriousish ride, I'll head out to essex. It takes about twenty minutes to get to some decent cycling areas. My usual is a round trip to Brentwood and back - 45 miles.

More locally, an evening ride around the docklands is great! It's a fair bit slower, but the roads are generally quite quiet and fairly nicely surfaced. Can be quite picturesque on a nice evening... great view down the Thames from City Airport!
