Hello from Limoux area in Aude

Post by DeeNdee » Sat Jan 12, 2019 4:21 pm

Hi,
I'm at the wrong end of 50 something, I used to be a keen biker a few years ago, riding custom style bikes. I stopped riding thinking that I'd had enough, but you don't do you - it's still in my blood. So now I'm looking to start again (strictly fair weather), with something a little smaller (500 - 650) and more agile. I might even have a go at building a bike, if I can find a suitable donor - something like a street tracker.
Well that's me, maybe some of you can help me on my journey, and perhaps I can pass on some pearls of wisdom - it could happen!
David (DeeNdee)

icon_welcom I hope that you find the site useful. If you’ve got any questions ask away. We have one or two members who are into customising bikes who will be able to help you discover what is and what is not possible. icon_Hi ya!

Hello and icon_welcom from Gard 30.

Whichever end of the 50s you are at, you're still a young 'un!

Good luck with your project

Simon

Hello David and icon_Hi ya!
Limoux is a great area for getting to the hills and mountains of south west France. They also produce some excellent bubbly icon_thumbup
There is no right or wrong end to an age range, to me(70+) waking the next day means I can get out on the bike again, although I am now more inclined to be out in fine weather rather than any. The best with your project, and let us know what you decide.
Mike
