    Philip Eddington Hello All I'm a regular cyclist and commuter. I love the freedom being on two wheels can provide. We have some lovely countryside around the midlands and I am hoping we'll all get out and see more of it while enjoying meeting new friends and increasing our fitness levels too. I'm looking forward to spending some time with you and hope you enjoy it.
