'The Angels of Bicycles'. I have been hankering after a bike for a while now. I gave my old one away on 'Freecycle' as it was a monster. I had not really ridden on it much but it was like riding/driving a Sherman Tank. I have always had a bike from very little. I am not exactly built for speed anymore and cycling is now my idea of an 'Extreme Sport'. It provides as much of an adrenalin rush as I can cope with. I had a fall of a bike when I was about 17 and it was no joke! I have been looking at bikes and going to various bike shops but I had not quite found what I was looking for, for a price I wanted to pay.
This morning my parents neighbours put out three bikes for the 'Scrap Iron Man' to collect. My dad explained I was after a bike and the neighbour said 'help yourself'. Seriously I think this bike is great. I am just back from my Maiden Voyage. Euan was behind me coaching (as usual) 'keep your balance Mom', 'Your are doing great Mom'. I actually went fast! Wind in my hair, free wheeling down a big hill shouting 'Yaaaaahoooooo'! I cycled for a grand total of ten minutes! I am building up slowly as I am no martyr to pain.
