A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
Hi all! I started riding around 4 years ago, the first time since having a mountain bike as a kid. I started out tooling around with restoring old hard-rubbish bikes and building death-traps, and went on to work as a bike mechanic for the Red Cross for a while.
I still bash around on the old Apollo every now and then, but I'm getting more and more into modern road bikes, after having to fix too many Reid's and budget fixies.
Melbourne is an incredible place to ride a bike, and after a hesitant start to commuting by pushie, I sold my car and haven't looked back! Get on and ride, rain hail or shine
