Hi from a winkly old newbie

Hi, I live in Droitwich Spa, near Worcester in England. It's one claim to fame is that the Pilgrim Father Edward Winslow lived here! I'm a 60 year old swimmer, still competing in Masters events. I rode time-trials when I was a kid but I was never that good. I now limit myself to a mountain bike that I use to supplement pool-time, along witha cross-trainer and weights.

I work as a computer technician in a school. I had hoped to be retiring soon but the credit crunch has put paid to that for the time being.

My reason for posting here is that I am considering either swimming the Channel or riding to Southern Portugal next summer and I don't like cold water.

Welcome to Bike Forums. It sounds like you have some nice plans for next summer. You might want to check out the Fifty Plus forum and Touring forums to plan for your trip next year.
