  • Well done -- I'm sure it seems hard at first, but you'll get used to it very quickly. I've been cycling in to work since the beginning of this year[1], and I've lost quite a bit of flab. I feel much fitter for it as well.

    I love my Brompton [bromptonbicycle.co.uk]. :-)

The main difficultly that I found when I started riding was that you're quite high up in the saddle, with smallish handle bars. This makes the bike feel very responsive to your movements. But I'm so used
