Welcome back!

Indeed Welcome back.   I remember your name but I'm not sure if we ever met ?


People have got married & had babies, people have had babies, people have drifted away, people have flounced, sadly some people have died, some people have joined.   Some radicals have even ridden their bikes...

Hello matey.  :D

Mostly, we're all about 10 years older.  Not many of us (myself included) are 10 years wiser.

Hello, ibrahim. Didn't you leave Britain's sunny shores for somewhere much sunnier? Are you back or are you surfing in long distance?

Welcome back!
Did you have some Danish connection?

Howdy all! I remember so many of your names. Yeah, was originally from Denmark, lived in London, left for the US with two bikes (one of which got stolen last year :'( )

Never got back into long distance cycling since i left, they don't have the same audax scene here. Was just loking at some old cycle route locations on Google street view when i got a bit nostalgic :)

Did think about returning, but that boat has sailed with Brexit, and besides, a "man cannot cycle the same path twice, for he's not the same man and it's not the same bike path."

Glad to see you have kept the community alive, it's really a special thing!

You left before I joined but hello anyway. Sad about the bike.

Special thing keeps on specialling. I think that's mostly what's been happening over the last ten years.

(But in terms of what's new: ooh so many little things!)

I'm not Windy any more, sorted the diet out and moved away from the Outer Hebrides.

Good to see you back!
The forum ethos is pretty much unchanged (thankfully)!
We are all a little older and probably not much wiser  ;D
