Hello............ I've already found a wealth of information on this site and had a few laughs too. I usually ride an MTB as it's comfortable and handles the cobbled sections () on the waterfront better than my road bike. Most of my rides are on the flat but I do hunt out the odd hill for variation. The plan is to do some longer rides on the road bike. Excuse the out of season photo but it shows my MTB on one of the rare occasions it leaves the tarmac! Rob.
