Well another day of urban cycling and I am beginning to feel more at ease out there.
I have also found several pieces on the evangelistic heights people will take this activty to (likethis andthis).
So far it has been good. My wife has been giving a lot of support and nightly massage to the legs, completely eliminating cramps and tightness in the morning.
I may do more cycling around Glasgow but for now, I am getting used to Paisley Road West.
Oh finally, I have found a great bike shop nearby (well in Edinburgh). If you find something that looks this good, it is definitely worth a trip on the train.
