Well, the mourning period for the bikes is over, though I still feel angry. I’m starting to get fat, and the lethargy at work could be down to lack of exercise. So this weekend, I’m buying a new bike.

There’s something wierd about not having two wheels around the place. I’ve cycled regularly now, for fun and commuting, for nearly twelve years, with only a brief break earlier this year when I travelled around the country for work. ‘Two wheels good, four wheels bad.’
