Hey, new beginner cycler here on the London streets, I'm 18, I live in South London (Croydon) and I'm a student.. My very good neighbours gave away one of their mtb's, i just needed to change the inner tube of the front tire.

Mostly use my mtb to cycle to college (3 miles) and I just like to cycle for fun, around 5-8miles are my comfortable distances so far, but I reckon I could do more with more determination and preparation.

I've started looking for a road bike as well, all the new ones seem pretty expensive for a student really :| (Specialized Allez is a nice range I reckon.)

So I might get a used one (if it's a good idea? lol) I've also came here to see what should I be eating while cycling.

So any tips will be welcomed ;D

Hi & welcome to the forum.

I like the look of the Specialized Allez too. The Decathlon road bikes are very good value starting at £270 http://www.decathlon.co.uk/EN/road-sport-bikes-3963881/

Howdo iZap. Welcome aboard. There's a few of us that live near you (I'm just outside Bromley) so you're sure to get spotted at some point. :biggrin:

I'm the one lying down and waving. If I yell at you, that's not me, that's Mikey :tongue:
