Lovely pics.
Good luck with the cycling.

Thanks Ridge, I hope I can manage the cycling it will make my life a bit easier. I am out of the house for 11 and a half hours for a 7hr 30 working day at the moment.

Thanks Dovegirl  :)

Aye, a Byker Grove biker, IM  :)

Thanks RGW  :)

You'll be galloping up the hills leaving Beefy in your wake.

I already do  :D  ;)

I've even been and brought a fancy new bike. It's very addictive.

 :) I'm hoping it wont have any adverse affects on my dodgy left knee and arthritic hips. It is great getting old. I hope you don't buy too many more bikes  :D

I never did. There I said it  :(

Thanks vghikers, I feel as if I've never been on a bike either  :D

I am a cyclist too  ;D

I hope I do better on my bike than your companion did on your recumbent (is that how you spell it?)  ;D

I see you have taken delivery of your bike...saw you in Keswick yesterday





 :D

 ;D  ;D  ;D

In my experience, cycling is pretty easy on the leg joints. I injured my knee many years ago, the after effects of which dragged on for years afterwards, but no ill effects at all whilst mountain biking.


In fact, I'll be in the market for a mountain bike after I have completed my move south. Roads, forest tracks and practicable bridleways only, of course! Quite fancy doing some more Trailquest mountain bike orienteering events.

Thanks Richard, I had heard cycling is better than walking if you have dodgy knees and hips  :)


I hope your move goes smoothly.

Thanks April - looking forward to it. Orkney has been good to us for 18 years, but it is time to move on - and the fells beckon!

To be honest my mate next door had the chopper and I had a Molton Mini. Long before I got a 5 speed racer of course  :-[

A recumbent bike. I used to cycle to work, quicker than bus/car and no parking problems. A fellow worker had a recumbent bike but it did look a bit of an art to ride one. Think I will stay with my normal bike
These boots are made for walking.... so long as the rest of my body agrees

Never tried a recumbent bike but have to say it doesn't look that comfortable a riding position.

Recumbents are very comfortable

I was thinking more of the riders back, rather than the bum.

I got my bike and I managed to ride it without beefy having to hold the saddle for balance. I'm still a bit wobbly and I need more practise, I will have another ride about on Sunday afternoon after we come back from Lakes. I'm going to ride it to work on Monday but I will give myself plenty of time to get there  ;D

Recumbents are very comfortable and efficient, from what I have heard.


I just don't fancy my head being at exhaust pipe level!
