The terrain is very much different here than my old neighborhood. Here, you really need to use the gears as compared to my old village where I mostly stick to one gear because it’s pretty much flat. But I get the same workout here for less amount of time. Actually, bringing the bike back to working condition was a workout in itself. And I even used an electric air compressor to reinflate the tires at that.
The only reason why I stopped biking in my old village was the presence of stray dogs. Here, it was the presence of stray motorists.
I hope I can pick up the habit again, not only for my health, but also to improve my flute playing. I hope I can do this at least thrice a week, minimum.
I think we all should use bikes whenever we can, just to contribute to gas conservation (and also our personal financial conservation, heheheheheh!).
Wish me luck.
