I’ve always wanted to have a bike. So I went out and got a new one! Rather, a new old bike. They said it is a well kept bike but what do I know. I just knew I like the look of mountain bikes and that I can’t afford to get a brand new one. I it for 65 quid, accessories (lock, lights, helmet and Edinburgh bike route map) 50 more from The Bike Station which was recommended by a friend. Very friendly staff.
It started to snow when I was in the bike shop. Given I’m not confident to share the road with cars and buses, and snow on top of it, I thought ten times before deciding to ride it home. I finally made it though. My hands were freezing. And then I had to carry it to my flat (three floors up) because 1. I couldn’t find room to lock it up downstairs 2. I knew I wasn’t going to ride it often and 3. I wanted to study it.
I saw Avatar today. I rate it 7/10.
