    Hello all, thought i'd add a message here and say hello.
    Back in the saddle after a long time, was racing in my early to mid teens, joined the local club, trained hard, started to put in some decent times (well i thought anyway!^_^ ) on TT.....then a serious eye injury put paid to my biking. I couldn't create any great pressure to the front of my face for a long time, so that was that.
    i drifted into my other love of music, learned an instrument, and as Bon Scott of AC/DC sang, 'let there be rock'
    Anyway i always kept up with cycling mainly the major tours and classics, plus the olympics with Hoy etc etc.
    fast forward a good few years........
    recently got the bug again to ride more seriously, so here i am.
    joined this forum as its chockablock with helpful info and full of friendly folk.
    look forward to the cyberspace pedaling with you all

    West Lothian? That's down south but not over the border.^_^
    There are a number of CCers in your area, have you seen the CC Ecosse thread?

    :hello: Get In The Van and :welcome: to CycleChat ! :wahhey:

    There are quite a few CC folk around the Lothians and, as snorri has referenced, we have CC Ecosse Forum Rides occasionally - and you have struck lucky as there are 2 arranged for early next month !

    We're doing the same ride on 2 different Saturdays and the thread for Saturday 4th is here.

    We'd love to see and meet you at one of them - or both ! :bicycle:

    Thanks for all the welcomes! :biggrin:
    Will keep my eye on the Ecosse rides, these 2 however have came up too soon for me, due to work and i really need to get more miles back in these legs of mine, also not got a road bike as yet, just got road tyres on the mountain bike (its a hardtail so not too bad and the front forks have been locked off)
