Hey there ;)
Just joined up - highly amateur (i.e. slow) lady cyclist here. Just getting back into cycling after a crash last September resulting in knee surgery in February ;) Forgotten how much bike kit there is to buy!!

Two bikes, a 2009 Trek 7.3 WSD hybrid - speedier dry weather beast and a new Specialized Crosstrail acquired via cycle to work scheme - chunkier, more stable beast which seems to cope better with the hideous potholed roads around here!

Fair weather cyclist, enjoying the warmer, drier weather in the last couple of weeks - using the bike for pottering around (so going to Starbucks for skinny latte) and an 8 mile round trip commute to work/gym.

Looking forward to being part of the community :smile:

Yep, Surrey

Unfortunately, my knee (or my heart) isn't up to proper hills, St Dunstans is ok, not going to be able to do Box (not least on the advice of my physio)!

I have taken the bike into London once (by train)...scared myself witless going round Hyde Park Corner from Knightsbridge to Victoria - almost got squashed by an R8 and countless buses :tongue:

One of my friends lives in the London Sutton, he rides a Yellow Giant SCR1 if you've seen him around?

I reckon, and my friend would probably agree, that the Macclesfield Sutton is a nicer place.

St Dunstan's would be OK were it not for the nutters on the A217.

For my sins I'm also from Sutton, Hi de Hi.
