    Hello, I finally decided to join the forum. My name is Margaret and I live in Kinross, Scotland. I'm a road cyclist. I really enjoy getting out on my bike. We have lots of little country roads here (many of them single track roads).
    We also have lots of hills, so you can't really go anywhere without some sort of climb, which I don't enjoy so much, I'm a bit of a hill slug.

    I'm not only a happilly married mother of three, but also about to become a grandmother for the third time.

    I'm looking forward to gettin to know you all

    Hi Skidmark. Yes there are some lovely views, but we get a lot of wind and rain here in Kinross. I'd love to experience some of your weather and no hills to climb!!! You lucky thing

    Welcome! I hope to visit over there sometime within a year or so, namely Ireland, but I would love to visit Scotland and England as well.

    If I can bring my MTB, I will, because there will no doubt be some wonderful rides all over there!

    Good to see more international support!

    Hi roadrunner, nice to see a fellow scot has come on board...i know what you mean about the single track roads, thats all i seem to ride on up here in Glenlivet...only danger here is the rabbit population getting snarled in the spokes.

    Hi Coco2. You're in a lovely part of the country. You must have some good rides there. You must be a bit like us, not many routes without climbing!!
    I lost count of the poor bunnies that met their maker today.

    I don't know that I'll be able to make it next year, but here's to hoping I can scrounge up the funds to fly, accommodate myself, and ship the bike!

    aw, that's never a good thing to have to count.

    your right roadrunner it is lovely and i count myself lucky to be in a job that allows me to stay in such a lovely part of the country...and as for the rabbits they are a nightmare when they run out in front of you.
