Hi everyone

Postby Graham Gilmour » Thu May 31, 2012 4:29 pm

Hi folks , i've been asked to introduce myself to the forum , so basically i'm a 42 year old tree surgeon from Kingswells who has developed a passion for WATCHING cycling especially the grand tours . I went along to Cyclefest last weekend to meet one of my sporting idols , Graeme Obree whom i have known all my life as we grew up in the same area of Ayrshire . It is only until fairly recently i have started to fully appreciate his monumental achievements and i have to say , there is an old saying that you should never meet your idols but i think an exception can be made with Graeme .
I thoroughly enjoyed the racing last week and left wanting to find out where and how i can see more of this hence finding this website .
As a complete ' newbie ' who will no doubt post some strange and exotic questions can i ask you to be gentle :D
Cheers , Graham

Welcome Graham,

First issue as a newbie, we already have a Graham G. You will have to change your name ;) cyclists are generally pretty thick and can't cope with more than one GG at a time. :lol:

Glad you enjoyed the Cyclefest. I've spoken to Graeme a few times now and a nicer bloke you couldn't meet.

Tadaahhh, I HAVE THE POWER, Graham G you are now Graham Gilmour, please feel free to PM me if you want this altered to another user name - like 'Lance Obree' or 'Frenk Schlack' or something.
