Hello!

Hi everyone, my name is Brian. I'm 54, live in Edmonton, Canada and am getting back into Bike Touring. I stopped riding 7-8 years ago(Divorce, raising 4 daughters)and the bug is back! I'm taking all of August 2014 off and doing Edmonton to Vancouver...2015 Pacific Coast. In 6 years I will retire and plan on Touring the World. It's a ways away but I am so excited! Now I just have to figure out if I want to do it solo or find a partner. Anyways, looking forward to meeting some of you guys(and gals!) on the Forum.

Welcome aboard

Be sure to post pics of your rig in the various "pics of your ____" threads (most are stickied) around the site.

Welcome to BF and be sure to get your miles in before the Edmonton winter sets in! Best of luck on your around the world tour when you retire, too...

Welcome to Bike Forums! You know, we do have a regional forum here and maybe you might want to post about your plans for future touring. Who knows....over time you might meet some of the locals and perhaps even find a riding partner for your trip!

Welcome aboard, I'm sure you will find lots of friendly people here and also some great bike related knowledge. I would love to get out and bike but bad knees from driving transport for so long. So now I just fix bikes and give them to churches and those I feel would appreciate one but don't have the money. That's my hobby I guess.
