A great idea, a fold-up bike, take it on the train, speedier and easier journey home, perfect. So today I decided to give it a go, except I thought it would be pleasant to cycle to the stone barges and then follow the river to the reserve. It seems only a short distance when you are in a car and I hadn't counted on saddle soreness and my thighs feeling like they were going to explode! It took me over two hours, which included some birding. The problem is little wheels and a fixed gear, a slight incline and I had to get off and push. And I'm sure my backside would give a female glow worm a run for her money!
