Hello, just a quick introduction. I started commuting to work(20 mile round trip) back in Sep 2007. I started on an Electric Powabyke - I wouldn't have made it on a normal bike!. After 6 months I felt a bit fitter and bought a Ridgeback touring bike back in March. I'm finding it fairly hard work, but its very rewarding. It's great to find a good cycle forum. Gavin.
