Hi all. I'm Tom
iv been cycling in difrent forms all my life. I started with a Raleigh Burner BMX with mag wheels in the 80's progressed to mountain biking then after living and commuting in london for a few years I'm now hooked on road bikes. Iv moved back to my roots in the north and live near holmfirth as a result I do lot of climbing! I don't really follow pro racing, I prefer to ride myself than watch others but it was great watching the grand depart going up holme moss and I'm excited about the tour de yorkshire which comes right through my village! I'm currently doing my best to stay fit over the winter as I keep getting snowed in. spending plenty of time on the turbo trainer . I'm hoping to enter my first sportive this year and iv joined to forums for advice and this and that as I don't know a lot of other cyclists up here.
