    Hello, I'm from Guelph, Ontario, Canada and spend my day in front of a computer. I'm strictly a recreational cyclist - used to ride the roads around this area when I was a university student back in the, ummm, 80's, and now prefer a combo of roads, fairly simple trails and the occasional off-road challenge. However I'd like to take part in some type of race or competition during the next year or so with the sole objective of setting, working towards and (hopefully) reaching a goal. Anyways, thanks for having me!

    Hi everyone

    I live in Mississauga, Ontario. I am new to the cycling community, just looking to get into better shape, just picked up my new Giant Yukon bike. So far I have only been out once as I said I am new. I am looking to meet others that ride so I don't have to ride alone. I work as a Paramedic in the Toronto area, if you live in the area please send me a message.

    Pretty new to the cycling game, although I've had a bike in the shed for a few years. Can't even remember the model, but it's a Repco DS mountain bike. Seems to still ride well. I found the site by trying to find info on how to reset my Sigma Targo computer after the battery went flat :eek: . Looks like a great place and one where I can find and hopefully in time add some useful info. Cheers!

    Unfortunately, Pfizer doesn't fully impliment RFID. I know there were plans to create a complete system, but that never transpired. Cool technology though.

    I live in NYC, Manhatten. I am a mechanical engineer/teacher. I am also a competitive cycliest with the oldest cycle club in the United States. The club that I race with is CRCA (Century Road Club Association). This club was able to help start the likes of Gregg Lemod and George Hancapie. I ride with a sub team called Bennettes Bicycles. I also have two beautiful daughters .... one is 2 1/2 yrs old and the other 4 months old.

    Remember: Just keep riding, just keep riding.........

    Hello,

    Actually many of you "know" me. I'm Diane from HubBub Custom Bicycles in NE Ohio. I actually have a request - we are looking for a tub of Bullshot Grease. It is no longer made and is one of our favorites. If anyone has some to sell, please email me off list.

    Regards to all.

    Diane
