A new electric tricycle

It hasnt arrived yet

And needs to be built

But my son can build it

Iím really hoping it will be ok

Iím so desperate to get out and about

I doubt Iíll do it here in the short term

But maybe as we travel my confidence will grow

And once again I can actually leave the campsites

Or even just get to the showers

Two kil defeats me because Iíve got to get back again

And all those helpful people who tell me itís 10 minute walk

Well for me itís not

Itís more than double that

And then I have to get back

A bus ride, great

But then a long walk to highlights and a long walk back to the bus stop

And back to the van

And several days to recover

Is it any wonder I hardly ever leave the house

But I so miss the outdoors

I miss striding up mountains

Even looking up at the mountains I can no longer stride up

Will this tricycle give me the chance to get out again

Without tripping over uneven pavements , having limbs that give up when walking

Just no longer trapped

It will be there as soon as possible and it WILL restore a degre of freedom.

BUT

no breaking the speed limit please....

Do stop at solid white lines and give way when needed

Beware of belying along the pavement or through shopping malls - old people tend to get in the wY and make the ride very bumpy.....

No giving Albert a ride on the handlebars a la

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Iíve waited so long
So who cares

Iím going for it

This little dog will have its day

Itís dark green

I couldnít care less

But hopefully he will run with the hound

Iím a bit worried about the back wheels though

Iím having mirrors to keep an eye on them

and the hound will learn

Well it hasnít arrived and Iím getting a tad worried

No explanation or update by EMail

Delivery stated as 2-5 days, now its 8 days

Not expecting any customer support should things go wrong

Still , paid for by credit card so some backup

My mate and his wife got an electric tandem and they were both in the middle seventy's, they said it flew along and they took delight in whizzing past bicyclists in their lycra and fancy racing bikes, alas Terry has now passed so his wife might sell it if anybody is interested.

ray.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......
