Electric

I am reviewing an electric bike tour of the city tomorrow, and I have to say I'm getting a little nervous.
I am not the most co-ordinated of creatures, and the whole electric thing, plus the city traffic is beginning to mess with my head (not that it takes much to create a whole world of drama, Walter Mitty style, for me).

I am going with a friend I haven't seen for a good six months, so hopefully that will calm me down and we'll have fun. Otherwise, I'll be a mix of burns and bruises, and you'll no doubt all hear about that, endlessly.

Wish me luck!

Note, I will have this song running in my head, as I pedal round our fair city on a hopefully sunny day. I won't be wearing a long flowing dress and I will be wearing an ugly helmet. What on earth were people thinking in the '70's??

  1. That sounds like fun, as long as you have a helmet you'll be right! And I've looked at your list, you're getting there, now I am intrigued as to how the inventing something one is going?

  2. Oh too funny about hoping the rain postpones your ride. It sounds like heaps of fun, though maybe not in a city. I would love to give an electric bike a go, Mr Awesome has a motor on his pushbike and it flies like the wind now. Thank so much for joining in with #thankfulthursday and your beautiful comments and tweets really mean so much to me. Sending you lots of fairy wishes and butterfly kisses lovely lady

    1. I've no idea why my laptop gets a bit selective about who I comment on...but got there in the end. It was great fun...I really liked it. Tho I was really scared at first when the power kicks in...

    1. Definitely put it on your list - it's fun, and you feel very healthy but you don't even break a sweat going up hill! So it's pretend fitness for the unfit...

  9. Ha I'm picturing you as Walter Mitty now, in your hot red dress, riding through traffic on your sparking electric bike in the rain… Ummm… perhaps I'm Walter Mitty too.. (I'd also be nervous. You know what they say about learning to ride a bike? It's rubbish. I forgot.) Have fun! Go forth and ride your bike up a Himalayan mountain Walter.
