Angel has one too... We've been hurtling up and down towpaths along the Thames and using all sorts of muscles we didn't know we had.
Decided to get helmets today, not sure they are the fashion statement I'm looking for but... No point in getting all healthy and exercised, exorcised ;-) if I get my cranium smashed during the process. It's been over 20 years since I had a non motorised bike and I'm quite astounded I remember how to ride the thing, I do get the urge to change gear with my foot and go faster by twisting the handlebar.
Also purchased extra comfortable replacement saddles today, the "fitted as standard" being unsprung and made of concrete.
Oh and the first place Angel and I visited on out new mode of transport? The pub!
