Just got to thinking today. It's been just over 3 years since I moved to North London.
It was the catalyst to buy a bike which I got a good deal on (bike to work), put some of my parts bin stuff back out there, got me building a wheel jig and my first two wheels. I love the bike, enjoyed it a huge amount on the commute and loads more rides besides, big and little, on and off road.
Just on the commute alone, I've done about 7,500 miles, saved about £4,400 in tube tickets and, because it's quicker by bike, I've spent an extra 26 hours in bed with my wife.
Aren't bikes great?
Thank you, bike!
