    hello from london, uk

    got my first bike today! it's second hand

    it's a hercules compact folding bike (i'm guessing from the 80s)

    i haven't ridden a bike for a long time but i'm now 22, want to keep fit, & not have to pay so much for public transport.

    it's a bit scary going on the road as i haven't ever done this before. but practice will make me more confident i hope!!
    one of the best things about cycling is all the other cyclists. it's like a secret club where we acknowledge each other. i've only had my bike for one day but i've been checking out everyone else's bikes & how they lock them up & differences & comparisons, etc etc.

    it's fun!

    Hello stef-o, congratulations! If you'd like, post some photos of your bike in the Classic & Vintage forum, and we will admire it, and see if we can pin down a date for you.

    Or, the Folding Bike forum will work too .

    What part of London are you in? Yes, practice will certainly boost your confidence. Wearing a helmet with a mirror can be really useful, too. I can't ride without a helmet mirror anymore!

    Welcome to BF!
