New rider

  1. Hi every one :smile:,
    Im Scott but every possible variation of that username was taken so had to settle with my last name. I am a 20 year old student currently living in north east whilst at University but travel back down to Farnworth (Bolton) in my holidays.
    Im new to (serious) riding however have used a mountain bike the past couple of to get to and from University and the joys of part time work. However recently upgraded to a road bike (Viking Roma), I hope with dumb luck and abit of advice from the sale man I have managed to chose a good one. . .
    The main reason for the upgrade is a forgot how much fun cycling was until I had to commute to my part time job so I signed up for the coast to coast event with my University and I think its safe to say im becoming addicted :biggrin:.

    Welcome to the forum. As young! chap living in exile from Whitburn, I concur with Mr Robson's observations. Most of my late teens an early twenties were (mis)spent cycling around County Durham. Oh, I did call at a few pubs too.

    Hi Scott. I didn't cycle much in Durham, but I did go to college there and know the pubs pretty well.

    The coast to coast challenge seems like a good one. I'm not fit enough to tackle it myself at the moment, but it is something I'd like to do in the not too distant future!

    It does look amazing around Durham next job is to get some routes. Lucky for me my university has a cycle team so should be able to get some routes off them and join up next year :biggrin:
