I have never had such a heavy and awkward, and to add insult to injury, girlie pink bike. A friend had barely cycled in his life. After he had hurtled over the handlebars into the bog and I pulled him out I heard him say "B****r Biggles." It is indeed a long trek.....however, we had much better weather than you. Apologies if I have told this story before.
Hard to back-out in front of your landlady when the Wing Commander had set the standard . It feels like you're away from it all, that's for sure, which I like.
