Hi from Burlington, Ont

Hello everyone. New to the forum and getting back into cycling after a loooong break. I finally upgraded my old Cyclops crit bike (great bike but uncomfortable to ride now that I am north of 50) and I bought a new Giant Contend. Looking forward to hitting some of my old bike routes although a wee bit slower than I once was.

HI, and welcome! Ontarian in the Ottawa Valley here. I was in your neck of the woods in early December. I planned to go back to try the track in Milton this Spring, but that's all on hold now.

I also have a Cyclops, but it's basically wall art now. Old racing bikes with their absurd tire clearance can't keep up with modern bikes that can fit 32s or wider, in my opinion., especially on bad roads or gravel. S ON has a lot more pavement than my area so this likely won't be as much of an issue for you.
