Bore Da!

Greetings from South Wales, the land of Rugby, Tom Jones and me!

Back commuting after a long time out due to bus service being terminated. However, at 40 years old now I think it's going to take a while to get to work without gasping for breath. The journey into work is punishing (all uphill) but all the better when returning home.

BTW, I've had a creaking whilst cycling, so after days of oiling all the moveable parts, I thought I solved it until I realised it was my knees!!

Good to see another Welshman on here. Welcome. I live over the border now in that other country that can't play rugby but as I recall from my days there, all cycling in South Wales is uphill.... but the views are worth it!
Well done on the commute - my knees have been creaking for years but cycling doesn't seem to bother them....
