I am Rob and I live in the Three Counties region on the borders of Surrey/W.Sussex and Hants. I started cycling over 30 years ago on the advice of my GP when I went to him with problems with my knees from too much road running. Once I started I never stopped. I retired about 18 months ago and ride normally every other day. There are a lot of routes in the area that take you on less congested roads and there is lots of off road if you want it.

I just hope that I can continue to ride for may years to come as it really is the best medicine anyone can take.


Too right - I've proved Dr bike manys a time.

Looking at it as a cup half full though, it's in superb condition!


Mine isn't.

I live near Cape Wrath, which is partly why I chose it. I have no idea what happened to the finish, or whether the damage went deeper, but it seemed best to buy a new bike when the drive train wore out...

I am new to the forum too by the way, so hello all.

I am Andy. I live in Fife, having returned from about ten years of working overseas a few months ago.

I like bicycles.
