Want a new bike desperately, but just got engauged, so I'll have to see where things go. Glad to be on board. Cheers-Joel

    I’m 45 from Brazil leaving for a while in USA (until end of 2003) used to ride off-road for fun 400K a month but now injured waiting to know whether I can ride again. Therefore I had time to surf on internet and find this cool site (I was looking for people with similar problems to exchange experience but I couldn’t find). Congratulations for the site. I’ll visit it more frequently.

    G'day!

    Originally from sunny Queensland, Australia, but have been living in Denver, Colorado for the past 18 months or so. My wife and I really enjoyed getting out skiing on the weekends over the winter, so we're getting into a bit of mountain biking over the summer. So nice to get out of town and enjoy the fresh air and spectacular scenery of Colorado. :D

    Also road bike during the week whenever I'm in town.

    Great forum here... full of useful tips!:cool:

    Hi, from Sydney originally, been in London for the past 16 years, but coming home to Bowral next year, need to sell my house for shedloads and come back with a mountain of cash in my pocket.

    Ride on and off road, Danta Cruz Heckler off and Colnago Tecnos on. Love to ride, not enough hours in the day to get the miles in I want with 3 kids and the weather over here, but hey, life is too short to sit behind a desk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi, from Norway originally but have lived in the 2010 Winter Olympics city of Vancouver, Canada since I was nine. Love winter sports and cycling to get in shape for skiing big mountains such as Whistler. I am 54 years old, accountant by trade and cycle about 700 km per month on my road bike. I commute with my mountain bike but not when it's pouring rain. I love it here but am a little apprehensive about the sudden attention that the Olympics will bring, not to mention all the constuction and traffick along my favourite cycling routes.

    I'm a resident of the wonderful cycling town of San Diego (though I'm stuck in Michigan until December). I raced bikes (primarily road) for about 9 years. I was a computer networking guy until just recently; I quit to go back to school. My major is nutrition, and I hope to combine that with my cycling background and be a sports nutritionist... someday.

    Hey there Kitsilano1967, I'm from Vancouver too. North Vancouver actually but now living and working in Augusta, GA as a wood process engineer. Don't miss the Vancouver rain or the traffic (that will probably double on the way to 2010). Where do you road ride out there?

    I work for a concrete company, and I make colored sand for swimming pools.

    I ride daily (ie commute to work, store, etc)
    Currently making this ride on a Huffy Blue Ridge 18sp MTB, but will have the Lotus Elan 12sp Road bike restored for riding very soon.

    Oh and FYI, I'm in Altamonte Springs, FL, USA
