Greetings from Italy

Hi everyone, I'm a newcomer to this great site.

After several weeks I finally decided to register and I just can't wait to look at some of the forums.

I recently rediscovered bicycling as a valuable means of tranportation. Italy isn't exactly famous for having safe roads, but this isn't stopping me from being car-lite.

Currently I commute to work almost everyday by bike (12 Km round trip, about 7.4 miles) and I also virtually run all of my errands on two wheels.

My faithful battlecruiser (named "Thunder Child" after Wells' "The War of the Worlds" ironclad) is equipped with panniers, but I really would like to build my own trailer for groceries.

Best regards from Italy!

Hey Atvar,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

I was able to get a trailer from a yard sale for $25.
