Its like learning to ride a bike all over again - literally!
I got a bike last weekend. My old bike got stolen at university 12 years ago!! Never replaced it as I was so heart broken, but I have been given one by a family friend. Having a bike in Cambridge is compulsory I think!

Anyway, last weekend the bike was out of the shed, the tyres pumped up and the seat adjusted. I took it for a spin round the block and...oh my...I felt like a young girl again learning to ride a bike for the first time!!! I hadn't ridden a bike in 12 years, and although the phrase never forgetting how to ride a bike is true, I was still wobbling all over the place!

Now it is raining and I want to cycle into town.....hummmmmmmmm

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Yes, she will. Now, if we can talk her into wearing a white shirt?

Well, as it is, I would need a really, really long lens. *G*

That 'never forgetting' phrase may be true for some people but I got a bicycle last year after nearly 15 years non-cycling, and I found it so damn hard. I fell off several times (much to the amusement of nearby kids on their bicycles...lil rascals...).

I keep taking it out sometimes, but I can only cycle about halfway down the street and end up carrying the bike back cos I find it easier than riding it.

Also the seat hurts like hell...whoever designed those things must really not like people...

The interesting feature in bicycling is once one learned how to ride it, unless tragedy like a stroke, dementia, or accident; then one will remember how to ride it for a life time. Balance and steering will come back to you in practice. Are going back to bicycles, because gasoline prices are rising or just for recreational and good exercise? I like riding in recumbent bicycles. Recumbent bicycles are not great in climbing slope streets.

I first got acquainted with your fashion are pictures with a portrait of you in the Frenzy horse collar inflate vest, which is obsolete as the newer ones by vest inflate jacket BCD by Mares, SAS (Japan), or BISM (Japan) are modern. No matter how prepared you appeared, but the Frenzy is obsolete and BCD vest is just better. Maybe, you could model for the BISM or SAS scuba gear, because they claim their customer base are more older in age. The price for the BISM and SAS tends to be higher than other brands like Mares and Aqualung.

I do like your website of the vintage racing cars in the U.K.

Cambridge U.K. is more like Davis, California, U.S.A. as both are university cities and largely bicycle based than completely auto centric. Gasoline in Stockton, California, U.S.A. is around $4.55/gallon and will likely peaked at around $5/gallon.
