I'm Tracey, I live in Purton, a village just outside of Swindon. I am riding a Schwinn Fastback 3 and I love cycling because I get to clear my head and think while I'm out on the roads although my main motivation is weight loss!
I have been cycling on and off for a few years but was practically raised on a bike as my parents are keen cyclists, I'm just getting back into loving it again.

Hi I'm Kenneth and live in Berkshire.
As of Wednesday I will own a specialized crosstrail. 
I love cycling as I comute to work, and need to get rid of my chins! I was a runner, but have had some injuries, cycling is a lot kinder on the joints!
Have got some trips planned. 

Take care, stay safe

I'm Jamie in Hackney and have a Specialized Allez Sport which isn't getting ridden much at all!
Looking for a cycling buddy in the east London / Essex area to ride with for motivation and advice as I'm a complete novice.
Not completely out of shape but want to firstly get fitter and then look at getting involved in some events.

Love to go out on my bike but, as we don't have any hills(bumps) within 20 radius of my riding area I find it very hard to get up the hills when i enter a sportive. What is the best training method on my routes (Flat) to build up strength and lung power to negotiate the next time i meet a hill.? sound a bit daft but i just hate the thought of going out up hills and letting the group down waiting for me at the top.

Hi all, I'm Tom from Plymouth and recently bought a carrera vengeance hard tail. I'm starting to get fit again and take my 3yr old out on the back on smooth routes when we have time. Anyone with suggestions for decent beginer-ish trails I'd be grateful!
