G'day!

My greeting as I try not to freak pedestrians out on scant bike paths which form a small part of my early morning commute, and my greeting to you. I ride a Fuji Tourer, only had it for 3 weeks and am adding to my distance in the saddle weekly since. I also ride a MTB Trek 4500, disc brakes. And I have a retro 1980s or '70s Raleigh Carlton Corsa waiting for me to do something with it. (apparently I'm meant to be getting rid of it, but I'm resisting) My main cycling at the moment is a 46km round trip commute, with a 360 metre altitude climb to get home, there's a train line that helps me out with any of the last 170 metres climb when I need it. I have several favourite MTB trails that are local, Blue Mountains NSW. Started cycling at 3, almost killed myself trying to U Turn on my big sisters bike at 4 (I missed the return and shot straight across the road in front of on-coming traffic), ruined my beloved purple dragster at 13 by shoving it under a car exiting a driveway, stripped and rebuilt my first roadie at 16 (it was really really bad lol) and have cycled throughout my life when ever I've been fortunate enough to own a pushie and circumstances permit.
