    Hello all! Yes, that's right, everybodys favorite - the first post!

    I'm a keen bike rider from New Zealand, mainly downhill on my Specialized Bighit FSR, but also for everyday transport - zipping around the streets on my shiny kermit green STP ;)

    I'm always interested in hearing about riding from around the world... which is basically why I'm here!

    Hello:


    This is the place for talking cycling. I am in the touring section because that is basically the only kind of cycling I have ever done, long distance, transcontinental, bicycle touring. My kind of bicycling is certainly not everybody's cup of tea and I do not expect that it should be. This forum is sectioned for just about all matters related to cycling. I keep to the part where I have had a large amount of experience, and even when I give advice to others less experienced than I am, it is still largely a matter of opinion and preference rather than any kind of immutable rule.

    I'm from Jakarta Indonesia...the profile picture shown is my 5 months daughter: Audrey...Isn't she cute? :)

    Btw, I need this forum's help to support in developing cycling habits in Indonesia..Currently there is B2W (Bike To Work) Community established in August 2005 with 800 members ...(see www.b2w-indonesia.or.id). This community's goal is to reduce the traffic jam in Jakarta and other big cities in Indonesia.

    do you have any suggestion in developing cycling habits? :confused:

    O.K., I'll play....

    My name is Dave (in case you didn't get that from my title) and I'm living in Jackson Wyoming these days. I rode and raced pretty seriously from the mid '80s through the late '90s in norcal as a cat III on the road and track with a little cyclocross and NORBA stuff since dirt is fun.

    Funny thing how bike racing starts seeming like fun when you haven't done it for the better part of a decade but I started riding again this summer and have gotten sucked back in to long rides, training schedules and an addiction to endorphines. Ah well, it beats just reading about the latest doping scandal in Velonews.....

    Hello. I live in Colorado. I'm 15 years old, and have been an avid mountain biker pretty much ever since I got my first mountain bike when I was 8. I'm looking into entering some races eventually, but I don't know exactly which ones I should get involved with first. I ride a 2006 Iron Horse Maverick. I just got it about a month ago, and I think I am going to upgrade a bit with ditch witch rims and hydraulic discs eventually. I'm coming off of a Specialized Hardrock Sport that I pretty much rode the wheels off of (3 sets of tires, 2 sets of brake pads, and 2 cranksets, chains, and cassettes).

    My specialty is pretty much just showing off. My entire neighborhood knows me as the kid that rides a wheelie for 5 blocks then pulls a big rolling stoppie. I learned how to ride a wheelie when I was 9, and I have just been getting better and better since. I also like stair drops, and hopping gaps. I would ride in the mountains instead of urban more if I could, but not having a car kinda limits things. I would take tight single track over stair drops any day.

    I also dirt bike a lot... Yes, I cheat with a motor from time to time.... Anyway, some cyclists aren't so friendly to us dirt bikers, so I hope to kinda bridge a gap between the two worlds. I know there are some dirt bikers that aren't very respectful either, but no matter what wheels I am on, I always try to be courteous, and I think others should too.

    Hello all, I am here because I would like to talk to other tricycle riders about their experiences. I love my trike. I can't afford a car, and my trike takes me just about everywhere, carries my groceries and my lil blind doggie. I have hemiplegic migraine which has affected my right side balance so it is impossible for me to ride a bike without falling off. (hemiplegic = mimiks a stroke). I did tip my trike majorly in the first month I had it..Ouch:( But got it repaired!

    Hi all,

    I'm from the West Michigan area and usually ride in the Grand Haven/Holland/Grand Rapids triangle.

    I'm a director of clinical services for a social agency.

    I often describe my riding as an attempt to keep aging off my back wheel.

    Leave for a tour of Italy and Greece this week. Celebrating our 20th anniversary and 5 years post cancer treatment for my bride.:eek: I hope to check out at least one LBS in each country.

    If its Hi Vis and Black, big and old, and on an aluminum Schwinn its probably me. Be kind as you pass by, I may have 30 miles in and look every inch of it.:D

    Welcome and how is it going? I am sort of new here too. I cycled England, Scotland, and Wales in the drought summer of 1984. It was great. I would love to do it again.
