My Introduction

I am an avid cyclist and have been since my childhood many years ago. I lived in a farming district where we used bikes as our school transport and our weekend rides around the district. My first bike was a Healing and I loved it. Since then there have been many bikes including one which had a child seat on the back, several road bikes and more recently I have developed a passion for small wheel bikes, the mini-velos. I own a 40-year-old folding Peugeot with 22 inch wheels. It is in beautiful, original condition and I love it; next comes a very cheap but impressive performer. It is branded 'Audi', was a fun gift from my son and has nothing to do with the German car manufacturer and everything to do with bikes at the budget end of Chinese manufacturing. I also have a new bike that is my all time favourite. It is a Cannondale Hooligan. To me it is the perfect commuter. I am also a keen photographer who enjoys taking cycling photos, some of which are currently on display at the Australian National Museum's travelling exhibition titled, Freewheeling - the history of cycling in Australia.

Hey Woods,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

When will you post some pics of where you ride and of your bikes?
