  • The drivers are generally a kind and courtous bunch, even when you are pulling some technically-illegal ninja moves at the traffic lights
  • Sheffield has lots of hills. You have thighs of rock

  • In rush hour you are the fucking coolest thing on the road
  • You can go to CCC Cycles and they’ll help you out, and be nice to you however little you know about bikes.
