    My grandmother was a math teacher. She helped me learn how to "translate" formulas into a language I could understand and solve. It was probably half an hour one day at her kitchen table, but it opened up the world of math to me. Keep up the good work!

    Occupation: Student
    Favorite bike: don't know really, there are many that I would like to posses

    What's in your stable? Focus, Blacksone ltd. 2004
    Fastest speed on a road bike? where? when? It's hard to say, cause I don't know your measurment, but it's 70 km/h, racing down the mountin Sljeme
    p.s. i think that 1 km is 0,62mile, so it would be 43 miles/hour
    Another picture of yourself or your ride? you're loking at one

    What is the biggest lie you've ever told: hm, lie... who? me?... never

    Most memorable moment on my bike: seeing the sea afer three day riding my bike through Croatia, it was my first ride somwhere far. It was the trip long 620 miles (or 1000km) there and back, but I had a wonderful time, and I was proud of myself to do so, cause it was my life dream

    p.s.I hope you wouln't mind my bad English, after all I haven't been speaking (or writting) it for sooooooo long

    Dobar dan Ivana! I wish I remembered how to say welcome in Croatian.

    There was recently a question asked on this board about cycling in Croatia and I answered best I could but I'm sure you could do better. How's the cycling scene on your part of the world now? How are the roads doing? And the drivers? Let us know.

    I was in Croatia in 2001 and really LOVED it. I am sorry to say I spent time mostly on the coast from Cvatat to Zadar, and only a a few days at Plitvice and Zagreb. I tell myself that someday I'll sit down with my learn-croatian-in-90-days books again and get ready for a new trip there.

    p.s.I hope you wouln't mind my bad English, after all I haven't been speaking (or writting) it for sooooooo long
    Don't worry about your English, my Croatian really sucks.

    Dovidjena!

    Don't worry about it! That's what's so wonderful about this board and the internet in general. It brings people together that NEVER would have spoken to each other otherwise. So WELCOME! Glad to have you here, Ivana.

    I must say it is not so well, because it's rather expensive sport out here, but as my friend often says "the only thing that counts is heartĒ that means that It doesnít matter if youíre driving your grandmaís bike or some high-tech miracle, as long as you love it.
    It is not so popular in Croatia yet but I can see slow progress in here. Only really bad thing is that very few women drives bicycle longer than half an hour per week. Sadly, but Iím one of the rare onesÖ I mean there are many women in this sport but on every 15-20 men there comes one woman, so I donít know any other girl that I could drive with. Perhaps it is cause we donít have forum like these, and I really donít like guyís forum. For me is to boring to talk about bike parts all the time, I enjoy the ride and my boyfriend takes part of other things.

    Itís a pity that you havenít been hear longer. Croatia is absolute paradise for bikers. In just a 1000 miles (approximately) we have Slavonia Ė which is flat county with many fields (mainly corn, and sunflowers), than we have Lika Ė mountain area with several National parks or Nature parks, and Jadran Ė our beautiful sea (Iíve read that many Tourist agencies in Europe called it top destination for 2006). Everything is so beautiful cause we are not so developed country (which is bad) and we donít have big towns like you do.

    your board is great, Iíve discovered it two years ago but I didnít have my new bike, and havenít ride the old one so often as now so I felt kind of silly to write about my ďexperienceĒ But weíll heard each other more often now

    ok enough for now, I must rest my fingers now

    Welcome to the board Ifka - did I understand BOK is the correct "slang" for hi? This is sooo cool having such an international contingent here! As for the measurement conversion - don't worry it hun....we've got miles, kilometers, and sometimes the number of steps walked uphill here, it all works! Congrats on your race win - well done! Hope to hear more from you!

    yes, you'we got it right. We Croats are 90% Christian people, so long time ago people greet each other with "praised the Jesus and Maria", than they shortened it to "praised the Lord", and after some time it was only "Lord". And the Croatian name for God (Lord) is BOG so jung people now only say BOK (cause it sounds wery much alike), and the old ones still says BOG.
    How interesting indeed this intercontinental corresponding is
    Any more questions

    Of course, I'll write ... as long as noone asks me anything about bike parts, I know very little in Croatian language, not to mention English. But, I know you'll explain averything to one ignorant like me BOK

    Hello, Everyone!

    Thanks to Queenie, I now have access to a forum for women interested in bicycling, etc. I'm looking forward to the information that will help me to choose what bike to purchase. Making a few new friends would be cool too. I live in NC. I am a yankee transplant from Massachusetts originally. I might just lurk awhile until I have something to add. Hopefully I can catch up....
