I'm Nigel (surprise, surprise). It might seem that I'm a newbie, but I was actually here back around 2008 under the name of diapason - I'm an organist. Tried to log in under that, but I'd forgotten my password and it was linked to an ancient and discontinued email address. So, hence, back under my real name.
Back on the bike after a long layoff which followed a messy divorce and subsequent depression and PTSD. I sold my bikes and kit. A move to flatter terrain and a small town led me to get a Brompton a year ago which I've been using mainly for local journeys. A need to get fit and a back injury severely limiting walking any distance, has encouraged me to buy a Thorn Nomad Mk 2 from SJSC (brilliant service). Hoping to ride more on the nearby canal towpath and around my old haunts of Burnham -on Mud, Weston-super-Mud and the Mendips as well as further afield on Tarka and Camel trails.
I'm medically retired but still play the organ voluntarily in local churches.
I've spent sime time reading through the whole 70-odd pages of this thread and am pleased to re-acquaint myself with many virtual and some real friends. Wondering how many of them are still active on here.
Hoping to be around more as I try to regain some modicum of fitness and lose some weight.
