Hey im Luke, Joined a few forums and got onto this just saying a big hi to everyone.
I run Blackburn Cycle & Scooter Centre and am a mechanic there so if you have any tech questions fire them my way :)
Have just joined TS and find the threads really interesting and helpful.
I'm a runner turned 'Aged Tourer' (64) and general leisure cyclist! I ride a Surly LHT. Just love the bike and can't beleive how comfortable it is on long rides.
My longest trip so far is Lands End in Cornwall...
Just rrealised this is probably an American site so not sure if anyone out there can help me but here goes. I'm planning to ride from Chester to Llanelidan, just south of Ruthin, in North Wales. I'd usually plan a route via the back roads but they look both convoluted and hilly...
