I hope you realise the tension you have caused us. All that time with no news was most distressing. Anything could have happened- the bike may not have turned up- You could have got to the shop and not liked the colour- You could have sat on the thing and not liked it- Anything could have happened. Don't do it again.
Glad to seee that the bike has the desired effect of upping the milage already. Glad to see that it has started to bite back though. New muscles to work- New goals to go for- and all that eating to be done to replace the calories you will be losing.
