    Hi all. I'm Reece from Leicester.

    Just came across this forum and been browsing and seems an good place for chat and info. I'm just getting back into cycling to increase my fitness. Been commuting by bike to work for a year now but I'd only a 1.2mile journey one way.

    Currently own a Raleigh Airlite 100 road bike, a Carrera Vengeance 2012 model and a Kink bmx. Looking to get e family out cycling with me too and hopefully try out sherwood pines.

    I have just recomissioned my wife's 20 year old Apollo with new Tyres, tubes and a little fettling, she is trying very hard to actually ride it, but has never ridden in her life, not even as a child! The bike was a present from her parents when they moved in to the country. She has fallen off 3 times and hurt herself quite badly.
    The boys have cheap Halfords mountain bikes which are ok round the estate with their mates, but out on longer runs they are way to heavy and spongy.
    I hope one day to all be able to go out on a long ride or maybe one of these Sky rides I keep hearing about.
