Hello from Canada!

Hi my name is Liam and I'm from the fairly small capital city of Ottawa (just over 1 million people here) where bike paths wind and turn for a few hundred kilometers (about 600km in the area to be exact, for Americans and those using imperial units that's about 370 miles). I own a red Mičle Modena road bike. I'm currently in the works of building myself a fixed gear bicycle, already have a full plan and all. I'm 18 years old and I work at Starbucks. Anyway that's my little intro, so see you on the forums I guess!

Welcome Liam! It seems like Canada has a lot of good bike paths/trails.
I have a son who plans on biking from Michigan to Vermont thru Canada this summer. He plans on reentering US near you in Cornwall.

Hi Liam.
My sister live in Gatineau so I go in Ottawa once in a while and it seems a bike friendly city. I plan to take my bike with me and have a ride next time I visit my little sister.
