Talk about 'a bad start'. The form just asked me with whom I wish to 'train'. Train? No thanks. Enjoying nature and exploring the countryside on two wheels, that's my pleasure. I also collect and restore vintage bikes, and I'm just as likely to be seen pootling round the Fylde on some 70 year old thing as on my Bob Jackson or Rivendell. I've recently slimmed down the fleet from 40-odd to a good dozen or so, including my wife Raven's three, and my daughter's cruiser. We have a couple of tandems too, which we are happy to let people try out. To be honest, I'm a bicycle obsessive/geek, but really not interested in the racing side at all. Despite my years in the bicycle business, our house is a carbon and helmet-free zone! We are also happy to teach, advise and ride with newcomers of all ages. If you see a bloke around Blackpool on a vintage butchers bike, Dutch roadster or some such, it's likely to be me doing my daily errands in between 'proper' rides. I also often ride with one or more of our rescued Greyhounds trotting alongside. Say hello - I don't bite!Level: Intermediate - Have spent time in the saddle!
