Last I heard was that bikes there have two wheels, and despite the myth, they have the seat on the rear of the bike and the handlebars up front, but it was not long ago, that all scottish cyclists were doing it the other way!
In much the same way that they say the irish invented the toilet seat, but it was an englishman who came up with the idea of putting a hole in it.
Sorry to poke fun, all in good humour!
There are many excellent bike shops all over the uk and Scotland will have excellent ones in the main cities, amd many small towns will probably have an lbs within reach. Being the least habited country in the uk, it also has some of the most beautiful scenery, so you'll have some amazing rides to look forward to.
Compared to the south east where we live, a notable ride is a slalom course to ride in and out, of cigarette ends, dog sh1t, chewing gum, spit, vomit, and sputum. I ked you not. Come to Crawley and I'll show you this and more!
