Well, just to let you know: I have got two new bicycles, after my really good one was stolen.
A shopping bike, a 60th bike, they are a lot tougher then the ones you buy now. Finally finished pimping it!. Big pannier-bags for market-shopping, also really good for keeping long black coats out of the wheels. The basket comes off, and is really handy; you can take it into the shops. Flowers on your bike are the big fashion right now in Holland.
And a recumbent bike to go to visit The Tarq. I have just gotten the go ahead of my physiotherapist to start using it! I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now, but was not allowed to try it yet. And I’m still not allowed to do the whole 17 km to the horses. He doesn’t want me to call him to resque me when I’m stuck somewhere in the fields! It’s also second-hand, new ones are very expensive! It’s a Flevo fifty-fifty. This was a state of the art recumbent when it came out: the latest models are still very much alike. It has a low handle-bar, most people prefer the high ones, which are in front of you. I wanted a low one; that’s also why I got this bike for a good price. 🙂
