I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
Today I did the same walk but took the buck saw with me. Lighter than the power saw but more work. Big end about 25 cm. I was over a km from home so the buck saw was a easier carry.
There was a 20 minute shower on the way home, temp nice at 16.
