I have been having another one of my midlife crisis today. You see I live in the countryside and I don't drive. I am too nervous to drive. I even jump when I'm sat in the passengers seat and another car drives passed.
The public transport only operates twice a week and it goes via Tibet. I exaggerate a little. But it does go on a thirty mile journey instead of my usual five or so miles.
I can easily get a lift into town every day. But I want my own autonomy - wheels. I have even thought of starting hiking. But that's boring on your own. It's also very dangerous because the speed limits are crazy and there's no pavements to walk on!
So what do you think readers?
Can you start cycling when you're nearly 48? What kind of a bike should I get? What gears would I use?
Will I start writing about cycling? Am I too old?
