Hello from Niagara, Ontario...

hi everyone,

Been reading the forums in the past - google searching for Classic bikes frequently finds good results and great info here. Time to join and post.

My name is Roberto, I am in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada. I love older bikes, currently almost all of mine are 20+ years old, and going strong. Very happy with my Celeste green Bianchi Trofeo (circa late 80's, early 90's I guess), it's the best and most responsive bike I ever had.

I am involved with a local touring club, and am interested in longer rides, made many good friends in the short time since I joined. Look forward to much reading in these forums, there's a lot of very knowledgeable people and no lack of new posts.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forums Roberto. Have you heard about the Great Lake to Lake Classic? It's usually held on Father's Day.

Thanks, guys.

gurry, yes, I have seen their web page - https://www.laketolake.ca/, a friend of mine here is participating; but I don't ride off-road much, just light trails with my Winter bike. This is what I found on their page, about the course :

Course Description (50 Km):

10 km of gravel and dirt roads, 10 km of double track, 25 km of single track, 5 km of paved roads (exact course will depend on race day's weather conditions). Approximate finish time: 2-5 hours.
Should be a fun event though.
