Hi people,
This may sound a bit crap but i havent been on a bike for three years pretty much. I found this site a few weeks ago and since then have got more and more of my mojo back!
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you lot without sounding like a bit of a dick.
My forced lay off through a lower back injury realy put me off the sport that i have been a part of for twenty years. This may not sound much to you fit bunch but in the last few days i have rode over six miles.
No not off road that may be pushing things this year at least.
And i am now building one of my old bikes up again as a period as best i can 1984 mtb.
I hope to see some of you on a trail soon!!!
Thanks for reading and thanks for the push i needed.
Much respect. Alan, in the saddle again,Cornwall.

Great to have you onboard Al, (my Bank manager might not agree with that last statement), i think the site has got a lot of us back on our bikes and fitter than we've been for years. Sure my marriage is going down the pan, but atleast my bike collection is growing..

'Tis true. Although I'm still struggling with child sized commitments and my favourite soldier of all time, General Apathy. Retrobike has saved me too! I can sum it up.

Retrobike: Good for your health, bad for your wealth.
