    'ello 'ello and welcome.

    you ever thought about pulling your mtb out in winter, and getting so muddy you discover grit in places you never knew you had? Its a right old laugh, and well worth it.

    Greetings, All,

    First post for me. I live in the USA, and am mainly a commuter cyclist. I'm certainly enjoying reading your posts, and see that you have many of the same auto traffic concerns that we have. I'm watching for any advice on city commuting, cold/wet weather, bike repair, etc. Great Board!

    Joe

    Hi there Joe, nice to have you.

    There is lots of advice to be found, all over the site, all you have to do is ask. Just for starters, here is a website you might find handy on traffic interractions http://bicyclesafe.com/

    See you round

    Hi Sickcert,

    Glad you made it over (and you are little more congenial than a particular paramedic).

    As Jacomus said, why not give the bike a dusting off and try it over the winter. Getting mucky is half the fun (that happens to me just on the roads!)

    Hi also to Joe. Where about in the USA are you. Obviously somewhere where you have cold and rain then ;)

    Welcome both. Hats off to anyone riding a bike in Ireland. I visit every year, but not yet had the guts to try anything braver than the back lanes of Kerry on a borrowed bike!

    Any tips?
     
  15. Not the Joe St Louis?! :tongue:
    Welcome to you, and SickCert too ;)
