With the roads munted from the earthquake, traffic is a little crazy these days even though the council is doing its best to get buses back on line. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Voila! My new cycle. She's even comfortable, sort of. I had to have the basket. Had a one hour ride today and whilst I was huffing and puffing she did brilliantly. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being Tour de France fit, 1 being as mobile as a rock, I think I'm about a 1.5 right now. But watch this space! In addition to being my new preferred mode of transport, my bicycle is also a WFD - weapon of fat destruction.
Update: As at 29/3/11 I have now cycled (grudgingly) 30kms!
