Hello all

Hello

Hello all, I'm Ryan. I'm from Lancashire in the UK. I am going to do a tour through France in September and have joined this forum to talk to other cyclists.

I've not done a lot of long distance cycling so i'll have to do a fair bit of local training over the next 3 months. I will also have to buy a bike because my mountain bike has had it's day.

I am attracted to the idea of arriving in Lyon and cycling to Bordeaux via the dordoigne route - then following the atlantic coast down to Biarritz. But I don't want to bite off more than I can chew!

Hi Ryan,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Touring is fun on a bike.

Have a good ride and take many pics.

Thanks. Wow you're both from Texas - apparently France is roughly the same size as texas but probably a more forgiving place to cycle i'd imagine???
