Started riding again in 2006, after about 7 years off the bike. Was a commuter rider before that and had a cheap hybrid. Got my first road bike after someone lent one to me for a charity ride, and I thought 'wow'! First bike was a Giant CR2, which I rode for three years until I ran into a van riding to work and was run over, breaking both scapula, but otherwise just scratches and bruises. Had my bike rebuilt by the LBS with a new frame - Fondriest. Great bike, but have had a few other health problems which has kept me off it most of this year. Hoping to get back into riding over the summer.

Description:  Although I am still riding this bike it has a crack in the frame and the groupset is a little warn now, so I have convinced myself this justifies a new bike.

Description:  This was my first road bike. Unfortunately died in an accident in 2009, although the groupset (Shimano 105) was transferred to my first Fondriest frame. Not much of a photo but this was the first time I conquered Arthur's Seat in Dromana (halfway up).
