Now tell us about your bicycles ...
I have a ten-year old hybrid that I LOVE riding.

I have NO time in my life for exercise, and am at the age where physical well-being is becoming harder and harder to achieve! Thus I ride my bike to work, and have been discovering Melbourne's tracks when time permits on weekends.
