    I'm in East London - Romford to be more precise, although I must warn you that I'm more of a 'leisure' rider than a die-hard biker. I dream of riding in Wales, but reality is more about the concrete jungle! Oh well, maybe one day...

    I live in High Barnet; work at The University and usually cycle to work.
    Quickest route is down the A1000 (Great North Road) to Archway then through Camden. There is a nicer way in through Hampstead I tend to use in summer.

    I know Edwards Bike Shop really well. My first bike was from there when I was 9 years old!

    I'm from Bromley now, a stones throw away from inner London. Towards the end of last year I traded in my old bike for my new Trek Pilot 1.2 I did this through The Bromley Bike Shop. It's not too far from Camberwell. You can get there easy on two buses. No36 to Lewisham, change at Lewisham and take the 208 that passes through Catford and goes into Bromley.

    The BB Shop was really helpful when it came to upgrading my bike and I got a really good deal on my old bike. Here's their web addy:

    Good Luck! :)
