Hi From The West Riding!

Hi All..
Just joined the forum and thought I would introduce myself! As I have said on the Welcome Mat I am back on the bike after a 8 year layoff. I have had a great few weeks getting the bikes back up to scratch, the pleasure from taking chains off and cleaning and lubing them, tightening spokes, re-setting saddles has been like a breath of fresh air. Had a few runouts on my old work/winterbike and looking forward to giving my 30 year old Raleigh Clubman a spin too. Maybe picking up another bike in the not too distant future and getting some miles in.

Still refer to it as the west riding, never mind what civil servants may say
