This afternoon I collected my bicycle from Bells in Hastings who modified it so that I now have a choice of two front sprockets to drive the 7 Speed hub gears. The box was fine for London, but I now live near the top of the hill above Hastings. Whatever direction I set out in, the return home was really tough, most of it pushing the bike.

To celebrate and test it I went up a nearby 10% hill without too much strain. I also went for a longish ride along the sea front through Hastings and St Leonards, stiff cold breeze on the way out, good exercise and fresh sea air blasted into my lungs. Sailed back most of the way.

It's been 4 months since the move, so glad I have at last got my bike modified!

Sounds far preferable to the middle of London! Although I have never been a London person. Too many people rushing about to too many places...
