Hey Helen - nice to see you posting again! If you want to feel smug for having snagged such a haul of shopping by bike, go right ahead. :-)

I got a new e-bike at the end of 2016, and rode 1000kms on it between January and Christmas week last year. At the start of last week, I chalked up 2000kms (i.e. my second thousand was done in four months).

I've been riding more because I'm sick of handing over money for public transport that regularly increases in cost but not in quality/reliability. I also wanted to lose weight without micro-managing my eating, and I suck at every sport ever invented - so I needed to move more, but that wasn't going to happen through standard 'physical activity' suggestions like gym or running. In the last few months I've been acquiring 'new' clothes from the back of my wardrobe - things that had ceased to fit, but do again now - and I hope the riding works just as well for you!

Cheers - Michelle
