Hello there,

I am new to these forums - I am from Melbourne, Australia and I have been cycling competitively for around 3 years. Mainly criterium or time trial events at a club level - nothing special.

I also love building track bikes. I have 2 for sale, enquire within!

Thanks

Live in Rancho Santra Margarita, CA (Orange County). I work at a place named STILLEN (www.stillen.com). Its a manufacturer and retailer of aftermarket parts for automobiles. I am a Data Manager there (the business is very data intensive). Have 2 daughters, 1 granddaughter, and am engaged to the love of my life (this WILL be the last time - if she ever sets a date) :) Have a web page that tells a little bit about me (www.YouthfulGeezer.com) - very little :) Cant share everything :)

Hopefully I can learn a few things here. Even more importantly, I am hoping this will help me get in gear and get back on my bike - so I can lose a ton or so :)

Hello, all. I'm from suburban Chicago (Schaumburg), Illinois, USA. I joined this forum after seeing good advice on recovering from inguinal hernias. That's one of my injuries in the past year after falling and shattering my collarbone last August -- a boy walked into me on a trail. I have a metal plate now, six screws.

This is my 12th season of serious cycling -- 4,000-6,000 miles a year. I dabbled in it in the years before with my Schwinns and was a runner before I discovered modern cycling. I don't race but do an MS ride every year and at least one weeklong bike tour, usually of Wisconsin. I've done something like 17 centuries.

I'm an editor at a newspaper working nights, which allows me riding time during the day. :)

Frederick Maryland, my 2nd year of road cycling, i love it! Avg 90 miles a week right now, focusing on climbing lately (a lot of rolling hills around here), so trying to get the mental aspect of climbing conquered.

Grip in the film industry in Toronto Ontario . I use my bike for the commute to work, a little over 40km round trip and train for the odd triathlon.

I'm from Tualatin, Oregon a suburb of Portland, Oregon and I cycle for fitness. Since September 2013 I've dropped from 200 lbs down to 170 lbs, and it feels great.

I have two jobs:


I average 20-21 mph and try to cycle 6-7 days per week, about an hour a ride, sometimes on the weekend I'll do a 40 mile ride.

Hi: I'm Ian Franklin, founder of the Chiang Mai Track Stars (Chiang Mai Track Cycling Club on Facebook) and a member of the UK based A5 Rangers Cycling Club and the League of Veteran Racing Cyclists. I ride here in Chiang Mai about 700k a week, some fast, some socially. I race on the rare occasions we have races in Thailand, or races that suit me. I also coach and mentor at the Chiang Mai Velodrome. Basically, I live the life of a full time cyclist and that's because I'm retired. If you want to experience the pleasures of cycling in Thailand's north there's a number of ways and a number of levels that you can that. We have cycing groups going out most days, chain gangs twice a week, velodrome training and so forth. My Mrs and I do home stay for cyclists only or we can point you to many hotels, dirt cheap to quite expensive. Chiang Mai is a great place for riding and I can inroduce you to the velodrome and in most cases fit you up with a track bike (depending on size).

Hi everyone.
From Vancouver, BC Canada.
just starting riding road bikes because of too many injuries jogging (feet, shins etc)
Bought a used 2005 trek 2100 (which seems to work) and am riding on weekends and a spin bike at home in the mornings watching the TDF.

Hope to keep in shape and lose the gut.

Any suggestions?
