I have always found it difficult making the decision to start a sport that requires a big investment before you can even get started – cycling is definitely one of them. Last year my boyfriend decided for me and I couldn’t be happier he did. This bike was my Christmas (and birthday) gift and today I am saying goodbye. I had a great first year getting familiar on the bike and with the roads here in England. It’s funny how attached you can get to material items… I’ll miss this bike.
