I am slowly building up the fitness and getting ready to start the trips down to the work place. To maintain the 40kph speed I want to do for the majority of the trip I do need to work hard. The head winds on the freeway are tough going! When the wind is pushing me, it is awesome!
Locking the bike up at the shops is still a bit of a concern for me. I use two of the great locks I have but I am always a bit worried about vandelism of the bike.
