Newbie to road cycling


Hi all
I’ve been cycling for years but not really road cycling, mostly for fun on a mtb,comuting to work for years on it etc.

Just recently I decided to buy another bike for me to enjoy as a hobby. I purchased a Boardman ADV 8.8, but just fitted some 700x28 road tyres instead of the 40mm schwalbe g one all round tyres it came with. I’m enjoying getting into road cycling and have loads to learn and ask so be prepared!

I do all my own maintenance and repairs when needed (I’m a car mechanic to trade) and I enjoy learning more and more about it all.

Anyway hope to learn more on here and meet some of you.

Welcome to road cycling!

From my own experience of road cycling, I can heartily recommend that you bang those Schwalbe's back on and GTFO the road and into the countryside ;)
