Hello from a new member ,Duer from Durham, ON


I'm a new member from West Grey south of Owen Sound in Ontario.
A group of us ride once a week, mainly on gravel with a lot of hills and interesting country riding.

Thought I'd check out your group to see what I can learn and participate in. I enjoy doing maintenance as well as the ride.
I am getting in shape for a cycle tour next year along the Pacific coast accompanying my son who's done a number of tours.
Should be very cool.

By the way, does anyone have any advice Pros/ Cons on a Surly Cross Check?

Best Regards,

Welcome to the forum.

There is a Google Group dedicated to Surly bikes at There are LOTS of happy Cross Check owners there. I own a Long Haul Trucker and it's a great bike for longer hauls.

Last year I rode from Salt Lake City, Utah to Durango, Colorado camping along the way. I blogged the tale at I'm sure you'll find lots of blogs at CrazyGuyOnABikecom where people tour the Pacific coast. I'm off to ride from Barcelona, Spain to Bayonne, France next month.
