Ian from Aberdeen - hello

Post by Ian »

Just checking in after finally getting some life out of my new Karoo with the help of Steve who gave me a work around for an inoperative stop switch (set it to auto-pause and press the Lap button bottom right to bring up the Save menu).

I'm Ian from Aberdeen, Scotland. Anyone older than me? I'm 72 and my cycling is mostly either functional (to get about the city) or for fitness (I play field hockey for Scotland Over 70). I don't do great distances but I bought a new bike this year with the intention of using it as a spur to do more miles. Let's hope the weather allows me to do that! All my cycling is solo.

Road cycling only up to now but I've shod my older bike with 28 mm tyres as it has a cyclocross frame and will do a bit of riding on rough tracks.

Hi Ian,

Welcome here. Yes, Steve is a good man, we're lucky he is around.
Wow, 72. I am only just 55. I hope I will still be riding when I'm your age.
