    I've been cycling a lot since January when I loved back into London.

    Bought a bike in January, within 2 months or was vandalised and then stolen. Managed to get a cheap bike from family during lockdown (everywhere was sold out). Got me through with exercise and then a commute to/from work.

    That second bike was destroyed on Thursday when I went to cycle to work and found that someone had driven into it and almost snapped it in half. FML.

    Now I've ended up [spending a lot more money than I would've liked] with a Brompton. For those that don't know, Bromptons are strongly considered the best folding bike brand in the country, if not the world. Bought it tonight from Gumtree for £800 and I'm genuinely surprised how well it rides. Proof will be in the pudding when I spend 45mins on it for one journey.

    This is my newest baby. Third time lucky...

    Me.

    I was into biking briefly, but I guess I've been lazy as when one of my tires went flat like 2 f---ing years ago I never got back on. I should pick it back up tho.

    Get back on that s--- man, it's great for you. Or, capitalise and sell the bike. Second hand bikes are selling for full retail price of not more recently because of how hard it is to buy a new bike at the moment.
