Newbie here from Finland!

Hi all! I am a British mum married to a Finn, with 4 kids, 1,3,5 & 7, living in Finland in a little bit of cyclists paradise! From my village there is probably over 100km of bike paths (shared with pedestrians, rollerbladers etc) past forests, lakes, towns & villages, & very interesting (undulating!) gradients! Finland is NOT flat!!! Before kids, I have toured around Europe, preferring hilly onroad routes. i even tried the Tour de France Route one year, took me a while!!! Now I am married too a fellow cycletouring enthusiast, with 3 boys who all cycled without stabilisers when they were 3 (amazing!) & a little princess, who loves both the trailer & the backseat! We are a carfree family, so life gets a little tough in the Finnish winter!

Terve oompah18, welcome to Bike Forums!

I'm a bike commuter myself, last winter certainly was a challenge. I couldn't invest that kind of time into commuting, so I had to resort to public transportation. Have you already checked our Living Car Free, Commuting and Touring subforums? Sounds like you might find those interesting.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
