Yesterday turned into a bit of a disaster on the way home.
The bike only managed 10 mph on the flat and completely gave up the ghost on the uphill. Unfortunately the uphill involved crossing a busy road. Pushing a heavy, stalled electric scooter on an incline while cars are coming down at you at speed is not particularly fun.
On the positive side, I am now very familiar with which approaches to my village have decent pavements and whereabouts the pathways turn into barely passable mud pits. And I got some well needed exercise.
So back to the car for today.
