    Hi everyone,

    New to the forum, and just back on the bike afte a two year layoff (triple discectomy!)

    I live in Wanstead east London and have a small weekend place in Leigh on sea near Southend, so currently my main ride is between the two (about 50k).

    Struggling to get the miles in as I work away from home a lot but hope to be able to up the mileage so I can join a club or two (they can be a bit daunting on their websites when they say "come and join us on our Sunday ride, we only do 60 miles"!

    Hi and thanks for the welcome

    If you see a lone biker on a blue tifosi, say hi, it will probably be me!

    Hi Lee, welcome to Cycle Chat.

    If you see a lone biker on a black Specialized on the Grays one way system trying to find a way through it whilst on a trip to Southend and back.... that will be me

    Hello Lee and welcome along from a Brentwood fella.

    I've played cricket at both Wanstead and Chalkwell Park, nice grounds and pleasant areas.

    Plenty of non (too) serious CC rides around London and the south east, so keep your eyes open if you want a day out with a good bunch of people.

    If you see a geriatric with his fishing tackle on the Stansted Airport - Southend bus that'll probably be me :thumbsup:
