Well I'm back at it after 4ish years off, brought myself a new roadie, after a bit of looking around.
I managed a 8 mile ride home from work Friday night too, looking forward to doing some more miles, hopefully tomorrow if the weather sorts itself out.
I had a little budget of £500
after looking at a few different sites and bikes i brought a vitus bikes razor VR from chain reaction cycles.

I had planned to ride to Whitby on Friday and Masham on Saturday to watch the Tour come through but was so ill, bringing up thick green mucous and generally unable to breathe that I couldn't even go near the bike. Mad Mad Mad Mad
