Big Hello from Toronto

Hello everyone,
I'm new to the BikeForums and wanted to introduce myself.

I'm in my early 30's and this is only my second season...I cycle for fun and fitness on weekends and when I have time in the evening.

As I'm fairly new to the sport I think this will be a good place for me to pick up tips on road bikes and cycling in general.

Thanks for hosting this.

Hi z3n, welcome to the BF. I,m about 30 minutes east down the 401. The Primavera is a very nice bike. I don't see many Colnago bikes in my area. A little too fast for me though as I mostly like to do loaded touring and ride my touring bike most of the time. I ride mostly the area from Newcastle to Trenton and north to Rice Lake. I meet lots of Oshawa riders not too far from my house going between Grafton and Colborne on the Waterfront Trail. They tell me that Oshawa to Colborne and back is ideal for them as a 100 mile ride. Maybe sometime we will meet on the road

Ya the we're lucky in Durham region....almost endless roads to ride. I meet people who drive up from Toronto to ride...its nice when people drive to something you have in your backyard.

I hope to see you out there...
