    Hi I'm 45, a Test Engineer from Plymouth in the UK and ride every day to keep fit and healthy. I commute to work Monday to Friday on my Kona MTB (20 miles daily), and try and ride most weekends on my Cannondale MTB with my wife on her Specialised MTB.

    Here is Plymouth UK it's great with easy access to Dartmoor on our doorstep.

    I don't understand these fair weather riders, I find the worst the weather the more I enjoy riding.

    Never give up.

    Keep Riding for a long life.

    Cheers

    Hey all. My name is Charles Gray from Kansas City, MO, USA. I used to run competetively at Kansas State University. I registered because I wanted to post a response to, what I consider, a lot of mis-information on how much protein one needs in their diet. Alas I am not able to post other than in this thread. Ah well. Noone will benefit from my vast knowledge. :D :D

    I am new to biking on the whole, but recently aquired a Kettwiesel TT. I live in Oslo, Norway but travel extensively whenever I can. By education I am a political scientist and have worked as a lobbyist in organisations for disabled and highschool teacher of business economics.
    I decided to get a trike after discussing alternatives to traditional physiotherapy during a rehab stay at a hospital last summer. The staff there helped me sort out what kind of equipment I needed and sources of financial support.
    My brother is an avid biker too, and he was very enthusiastic about the bike and helps me i.e lifting it. It's supposed to be light, but because I have two small leadbatteries attached to the front wheel frame, it is still quite heavy. The batteries power a small engine built into the front wheel that helps me bike up i.e steep hills.

    Anyone in the Knowsley Huyton area like to hook up for a ride as it can get lonely on your own, and on your motivation.

    i am currently living in plano,tx. i am a 50 year old programmer and love motorcycles. i've been riding bicycles off and on since 1993 with 2002 being my highest milage year but plan to set a new high this year (although i'm a little behind schedule this year due to some bad weather).

    i love riding on two wheels and the satisfaction of coming down the long 1 mile hill to my home at the end of a ride. looking forward to a great year of riding.

    CHOW.

    my name is trudy and i ride a fuji track bike on the streets of nyc. i just got a new frame and am starting to build it up -- hopefully by spring time, so i can commute to my paper-pushing job at columbia university (class of 2001).

    my boyfriend lives a block from the kissena velodrome in queens so i hope to be able to start doing some light training there when the season starts again.

    First post and hello to everyone. I've been searching for information on here for the past few months and the forums have been very helpful in answering every question I could think of. Thank you all for being such a great resource.

    I am from New Jersey and I am a post-bacc pre-med student, working part-time at a LBS. My current bike is a shiny new Lemond Filmore. :)
