Hello Guys / Girls.

Thought i would say hello to you all and actively seeking to take Mountain Biking up.
My name is Richard and currently living in the East Midlands nr Loughborough.

I currently dont have a suitable bike however have posted in the MTB Beginners Section for advice what to purchase. http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=15967704#15967704

So just thought i would say hello to you all, and all advice on bikes, equipment, and routes extremely welcomed.

    Hi Rick, welcome to BR. It's worth taking a look at this thread first:

    Then do some shopping around and try out as many bikes as you can in your price range. Halfords are well worth a look for a first bike - the Carreras and Boardmans are great value and very well reviewed

    Hey Rickbus welcome to the forum!

    I only joined a week or so ago, just bought a 2010 GT Avalanche 2.0 Disc and i am more than happy with it. Did a 7 mile reasonably tough trail on it last weekend, got caked in s**t and enjoyed every second of it. Remarkably confident bike even with a total novice sat in the saddle.

    Highly recommended!
