:oops: I can't drive so I fear driving totally it is all bike walk or bus for me
I couldn't cope without driving, I don't know how anyone goes without knowing how to drive in this day and age
although I didn't take my test until I was 26 and that was because I lived in the country and the buses kept refusing the pushchair
so I took my test and got a 2CV. I love knowing I can just nip to the town shops in the car and to the city ,as I live in a village with no amenities
We did live for about a year without a car, we had bikes for the oldest three and a trailer kit for the youngest, but when I was sectioned for 5 months my mother in law bought us a car and we've had one since. I must say the two seater trailer bike was hard to handle, but taking my little one in the child trailer/pushchair was easy
I only get the jitters when I am on the motorway and it starts raining heavily.
I can't wait to get off. The idiots who carry one driving way beyond stopping distances allow are harbingers of doom.
Of course I would never be on a motorway on a bicycle.
I remember driving in rainy conditions, that I've never met the like
and I was driving slowly because of it and had to brake for a roundabout, I was going before I broke about 10 mph and still rolled in the wet for yards praying I'd not crash I didn't, but rolled and turned, which was mostly ineffectual, to a holt just beside the car, I pulled over in the nest service station until weather improved.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
Sneaking in components behind hubbies back Shhhh!!!
