Has it really been that long?!

Wow, I can't beleive it's been almost 3 years since I last logged on here! And I still have got no further

Due to work and family commitments, uni had to take a back seat just as I was starting to get to grips with the basics.

But now, well now it's time for me to lose the weight I've ut on over these 3 years. Once I'm back down to a reasonable weight, which should be by the summer (i'm usually pretty good with this when I put my mind to it) I intend to start learning the uni all over again.

Looking arond the forum and some other sites a lot seems to have changed in this interim period. not least the amount of different quality uni's around.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning again. Looking for any clubs in the Durham (UK) areas as well. I know JUST is in billingham, which I have attended before and thoroughly enjoyed but unfortunately they meet on a night which I can't make at the moment, but if my situation changes I shall certainly go again and would love to try muni when my skill level is sufficient.

Well that's it I guess. Just thought I'd say hello and post a little something to make me accountable. Let's see what the next six months brings.

Start riding BEFORE you lose weight. Waiting till after is just wasting time you could be learning.

Welcome back! I know it's tough sometimes to keep at it when you've got other obligations. Hope it works out better this time around. Cheers!

Cheers Roger, I may pop along some time.
It's just ironic that the two days that the local groups meet is the same two days I can't attend at the moment whilst my wife trains for a marathon. But that should change soon hopefully.



Anyway, it's nice to see some familiar faces still here and enjoying.
