    Hello everyone, I stumbled onto the site trying to fill a BB room for this years Caledonian Etape. The owner was planning to charge us even though my mate pulled out 6 weeks before. I am a regular on Retrobike but have really enjoyed the Etape threads here and plan to be online more often. I ride a tandem with my partner, an all singing and dancing rigid MTB, a comfy touring hybrid and a fast 'dale retro MTB set up for the road. I've got a cluncker too for the ride to work which is ugly enough to leave around Newcastle without too much attention. Approaching four decades old the back's not what it was hence the hybrid but I'm really happy with the relaxed position and plan to use it this year for the Etape and a W2W in the Summer. Hope to give newbies to touring and sportives the benefit of my experiences and pray our "friends" in the North choose a less damaging form of protest this year!
