Finally Returning!

So, after a disastrous couple of weeks having a bike stolen, buying a new “bargain” only to find the brakes stopped working, a tube strike making it necessary to walk the 15-mile round trip to work, I finally have a new bike and am getting back into London cycling.

I went for a Dawes: they are a well-established, British brand with practical and attractive bikes. Not the lightest model (prices increase steeply for lighter materials) it still beats my old model by around 2kg, making the 2-flight stair clamber slightly easier.
