New bike / first ride + pictures

Hello
My new bike arrived today (trek 7.2) had to put front wheels etc on, i also got one of them little computers man is that thing complicated, i tried to use it but i couldnt get anything to start i guess i should have read the instructions first

i guestimate i did about 3 miles in total party just to make sure nothing dropped off the bike and partly because thats probibly about all i can do right now, hopefully i will be able to do more as i start to get fitter.

anyway here are some picture - i just post thumnails as i think they might be a bit big, if you click on them you should be able to view full size:




I saw a fat cock phesant just on the road in front i tried to get him in the picture be he slinked off into the long grass - phone box on the left cant be used much


fairly rough bit of road, i was suppried how well the Trek handled it - no flat tires or wheels snapped in half


the bike.


Second most interlinked nothern point of UK cannal network - you can sail right down to the south of England (i live in the north) to the heart of London and numerous other places from here.


Some more horses i saw on the way back.

thanks for looking.
