Hi

I just signed up after recently buying a raleigh racing bike and getting into cycling again. I lived in Copenhagen for 2 years and rode my bike every day. Have just recently moved back to the northeast and bought a nice second hand bike so will be using the forum for tips and to find local groups etc currently dont have any buddies as interested in cycling as myself ;)

thanks for reading

Hello John and Welcome to the CC forums. :biggrin:

I'm sure there are plenty of club cyclists in your area - there are a few members on here from Northumberland. ;)

Good luck with the cycling.

Hi John,

You've got some lovely countryside nearby for riding in. I've been to Longhirst a couple of times - I'll have to try Bothal soon.

Yea there is some nice countryside and coast line ;) Bothal has a really steep bank good for going down fast but hard coming back! and the new road to morpeth has nice new cycle paths

hello Joe,

Ive been quite busy aswell so havnt been on my bike too often. Im interested in finding routes to cycle round here though, with decent smooth road.

Have you tried cycling down Alexandra Road yet? It is fun now thats its smooth and especially going from the hyrst castle pub down.
