Greetings fellow cyclists! This site is run by a cyclist for cyclists. I have cycled in Britain, Europe and Australia in my time and so I'm getting a little slow now, but I still love to ride although not so far these days.
I started my riding in Wales where my favorite ride was 100 miles circuit from Bangor around the Lleyn Peninsula. During those years I rode a Dawes Galaxy Tourer - a great bike that lasted me many, many years.
As I was in the Merchant Navy for years I was blessed with long leave periods which I often used to go meandering around Britain and Europe. One day I left the house in Wales in no particular direction and ended up in Hameln in Germany! i had a friend there in the army and his wife still has nightmares about me turning up in bright yellow shorts on a rainy day! So many happy years on the road, but sadly, no photos - I was never the 'selfie' type of guy!
After 20 years in South Africa, where I did not cycle at all for a host of reasons, I came to Australia and again took up my long-abandoned passion. I lost 20 kg in 3 months! I now have an Australian bike - an Allegro tourer. It's a nice bike but I still hanker for my Dawes, which is not available here.
We now live in Beautiful Brisbane; the motorists are generally very considerate, the roads good and the environment generally cyclist friendly - it's a great place to be!
We started this little business because of my rediscovered passion for cycling, and also to make a few dollars. Over the months I'll see if i can get into 'Selfie mode' and post a few photos or at least photos of our beautiful surroundings. I may even tell you what it was like to get back on a bike after 20 years - and believe me, it's NOT TRUE that you never forget how to ride a bike!
