Hello all

I have just got a road bike from Ron Spencers local bike shop it was a Giant Defy 2 loverly bike.
Anyway i am intrested in any review regarding what i bought and wondered if there were any local lads who i could maybe ride with in the warrington area.

I have been using my mountain bikes to try and keep fit Giant f/s & Genesis h/tail around my area but unfortunatly its hard going sometimes on the road on a mountain bike .

This was one of the reasons why i bought the bike but also intrested in road bike riding.
I have purchased some shoes / spd and lycra which i am only used to the baggy shorts if you get me lol.

Anyway look foward to some pointers that may help me out or anyone local that i could join up with thanks in advance mike.

    Welcome to the Bikeradar and lycra.

    There is a group called North Cheshire Clarion who ride in your area, they seem to get some good comments and have a decent following, could be worth a look - I live to far away to have ever ridden with them so cannot speak from personal experience but anecdotally you could do a lot worse.
