A nice tale.

Before I bought the bike in 2016, I resisted and reasoned. I was in my sixth decade and therefore too old to start something new and potentially dangerous. My dodgy back and recurring pelvis injury made me wonder: would my body cope with this new activity? Would I outlay hundreds of dollars, only to have the thing sit in the garage, goading me every time I walked past, until eventually rusting to death? Would I be safe on the roads? And would it be any fun on my own, or just a figment of some childhood imaginings? Zig-zagging the white lines of rough bitumen with my younger sister often ended up with one of us nursing bloodied knees and elbows.
