Since Alex is at work during the days at the moment, I did a brave thing and tried riding the bike into the city this afternoon. It was a bit scary, trying to remember the “road” and bike rules and stay on the right hand side all the time. The bike lanes are mainly pretty safe anyway, but I just forget when I have to stop and give way, cuz most of the time here the cars have to give way to the bikes. I’m not used to that and I stop all the time, lol.
Incredibly, I found my way and remembered from the few times we’d been before. At one point it did become a bit fuzzy to me which way to go as I got nearer to the city, so I just followed all the other bikes. So I spent a few house walking around and discovered that there were a handful of stores that take visa (they have the sticker displayed on the doors), but there was also a lot of stores that didn’t.
Even better, after all that I actually found my way home again……yay!
