    Hi all. Just wanted to say thanks for such a great site. I am thinking of buying a road bike and have been reading the forums for a couple of weeks - what an absolute gold mine of info, reviews, and advice it is. Really friendly too; on the newbie forum everyone is welcoming with no patronising or snarky comments.

    I am not even sure I will commit to buying a bike as I'm a bit daunted by the traffic round here, but I am really enjoying reading the forums and the enthusiasm is contagious.

    Hello and welcome.
    Don't worry about the traffic, give it a try. You don't have to stay on the roads, there are plenty of alternatives.

    On a bike you are also traffic. This is something that the rest of the traffic has to accept. That's how I look at it anyway.
    Cycle Craft by John Franklin gives good detailed information on how to tackle all sorts of road situations.

    Hopefully you're not to far from quieter roads, aim for them and get your confidence up, traffic is a pain, but it is something you get used to. I still avoid it as much as I can.
