I want to ride my bicycle

Nick Dewar
I've gone a bit bike crazy today, I guess my boyfriend's admiration of bikes must be rubbing off. I don't think I'll ever get to his obsessed heights though. At the moment I'm liking the pictures I find rather than taking it that step further and actually buying everything. I hadn't owned a bike in ages until Dave built me one for my birthday last year and although I need to learn how to cycle on the roads properly without being scared of traffic, I am really enjoying it. Once I build up my confidence a bit I'd like to use it to go into town and avoid public transport wherever possible. Like the poster above by Scottish artist Nick Dewar says, it really would makes things simpler. It's good for your health, the environment and your wallet. Here are some nice bike photos for you to have a gander at. Have you got a bike? What do you like most about cycling?
