Hello , firstly I would like to welcome you to my profile page here at Hubpages and stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading my articles.

I came across hubpages by chance when I was searching for information about product reviews, writing on line and wanting to build my own website. I joined the next day and haven't looked back since. You can find articles on here about just about anything, particular emphasis is on cycling and mountain bike parts and accessories, engineering products, DIY and industrial products and my love of gardening.

I love road cycling and mountain biking and you will find many articles here on biking and bike accessories to read. I also enjoy gardening and there are some great articles on how to improve and enhance your own garden. I'm passionate about growing organic fruit and vegetables, many of which I grow in containers, so be sure to check these out. I also enjoy reading and following other writers here at hubpages, but most of all I love to write about topics I enjoy and know about.

On hubpages I write about

Mountain biking,

Mountain bike parts and accessories,

Gardening.

Thanks for looking.
