- Environment friendly
- Saves me the cost of petrol
- I can use the exercise (especially since I'll have to stop swimming soon, once winter sets in)
I didn't really splurge, just got the cheapest, basic Hero Cycles model; cost me 2800 bucks (about $65 right now).
It was weird riding a bicycle after all these years, especially after getting used to a motorcycle; felt incredibly flimsy and unstable. And my legs weren't used to the workout I gave them riding back from the shop to home. But I'm guessing it'll get better soon.
I couldn't find any pictures; the Hero Cycles website has apparently exceeded bandwidth limit.
