30 Bananas a Day!

Last week I got the brakes on my bike fixed. Turns out that the bike wasn't even put together properly, and I bought it second-hand, so I didn't realise that it was wrong. I got it fixed for $20 which was awesome. The best thing about having brakes is that I can actually stay on my bike now, no walking down the hills anymore.  

Yesterday I rode to work (4.5km) and then back home. And I also rode to a friend's place (2.3km) but got a lift home 'cause it got dark. And today I rode to the shopping centre (3.1). 

I love riding, to me it's like pure freedom. It is something that I definitely want to keep doing. I reckon it would be pretty cool to still be cycling when I'm like 50 or older! I don't want to get a car, while I'm single I am free to go riding and that is something I am taking advantage of. To me cars are a waste of money, time, energy, worry, and plus the chemicals and fumes they give out must be terrible for the environment. If I seriously wanted to go travelling I can take my bike, you can even take bikes on planes, though it would have to be a light bike otherwise the cost would be shocking, and trains. I don't care if others think I'm weird for riding everywhere, my bike is my number 1 transport, and that I will not so easily give up for anything.

Yeh,cant beat cycling for getting around town. You can save a lot of money through no rego,insurance,petrol,running costs. Car pooling and borrowing a friends car can work well,when you need to. Its amazing how many people everywhere jump in cars to drive less than 10 kms. Some even drive to the gym so they can ride a stationery bike! Well done on your choice of transport,I'm a keen cyclist too,love it. Stay safe and thankfully magpie season is nearly over!
