American in UK..sold the car and got a bike
I have live here in the UK for 13 years, I have finally changed jobs so that I can commute to my work place. I live in winchester and now commute to Cosham, (near Portsmouth), 44 mile round trip. I am a real newbie to the cycle world but got sick of paying the high price of petrol (gas) here in the UK.
I am 39, I thought this would be the best way to get fit without having to go out after work to try and stay fit...This is my third week and I am learning a lot by trial and error. I hope to keep my commuting miles up and the train rides down.
I am riding on a ebay purchased Marin Mill Valley Hybrid bike, I love it to bits. I am just trying to stay dry and safe....having fun learning too!!!
