Does anyone know of a website the equivalent to this for cycling? Or can anyone give me some advice?
I am interested in starting cycling up, but need guidance on how long to start off with etc. Also, if the bikes in the gym are good to start with?
Thanks!

some of the triathlon websites have information relating to the basics of cycling - I found them helpful. They dont have forums similar to this though.

bikemagic has a decent forum but seems to be more geared to mtb. Also, those guys can get real technical.

Nicster,

Probably far too late, but www.bikemagic.com now has a sister site for road cycling which may be more your cup of tea?

www.roadcyclinguk.com

You asked for an equivalent site. I hope you'll find the forum refreshingly familiar!

Cheers and happy new year,

Jeremy

Wow! How spooky is that? Off to register now, and will probably get even less work done today.

maybe worth asking the triathletes on this site to...that strange lot lurk down in the tri/ultra forum...

Those cycling folk are nutters. Their forum names are all things like "Arthur Heaton", "Matthew Field" or (ahem) "Jeremy Tapp". And the topics are all things like: "Should us cycleists be made to wear helmets by law" (sic) and "Looking at buying an Audax bike" I.e. cycling!

Why don't they have forumites called "Cycling Hippo" or "Purple Cyclist"? And they should have topics like "What would a rabbit hutch for a cyclist be like?".

But I'll bet the most popular threads that keep coming up again and again, are:
"Lance Armstrong is so wonderful",
"I just got a signed copy of Lance's autobiography for Xmas" and
"The Tour de France is a rip-off"
;)

Well, there's one called Fat Squirrel now.

How does a person get a signed Lance Armstrong biography btw?

FS - you join a very big queue!

There is now also a McGoohan too. (So I can start my 'The Tour de France is a rip-off' thread now.)
