Welcome – you have found your way to the friendliest bike forum on the planet. Bikes and biking is about the only thing we have in common, this is a diverse and welcoming group of folk from all parts of the country, riding all types of bikes.
Whether you passed your test last week or last century, or are just seeking some info before you take your first steps on the road to bikerhood, there is plenty here for you. If you are seeking to gain or share knowledge on anything from the fine points of suspension set up for the track, top tips on hospitable yurts for your trans-Mongolian adventure epic or the do's and don'ts of filtering, as well as breaking, fixing and improving or restoring bikes, it is all here for you.
The forums also sometimes have a faintly surreal edge due to our apparent fixation on bakery products – but in truth this is just the anti-swearing filter at work. Type what you like, and if it falls foul of the no swearing rule it will be gently converted for you, you teacaking meringue.
There is a genuine community here – and we welcome new additions. We have three or four set pieces each year – the Goat Meet, our May charity meet that kickstarts the riding season, the Welsh Wet Wales Weekend, a high summer festival of riding sublime welsh roads, and a pre-Christmas dinner meet co-inciding with the NEC bike show – and of course loads of locals to hook up with for rides and banter where you live...or further afield!
