Re: New Job, New City, New Life

We're moved into our new house now and both have a great feeling in it :D

Looking forward to getting out and about on a bike to discover the local routes (out of town :lol: ) :wink:

I think you may have made the right decision - most who start instructing, cease to enjoy recreational biking.

Good luck with the new venture - whereabouts in Auld Reekie are you moving to?
