First biking tour
Let me be honest: I have never used a bike for anything other than pleasurable exercise. Now I will use it as a means of transportation. I have never biked on my own, and I feel insecure biking amidst traffic. Today we took a maiden tour from Water Street to Homerton, by a route investigated by Staffan, avoiding traffic altogether. It starts along the river and goes on through residential areas on small streets. If there is no more traffic than that on weekdays I am happy. We didn’t take time, but it could not have taken more than twenty minutes. It will be fun. I will not at this point worry about rainy weather.
