A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
I'm starting to cycle because:
1. I need to get around but do not yet have a full car license
2. I need to get fit
3. And of course, even more economical than even a diesel car!

And I take thee, o Dahon Eco 3, to be my lawfully wedded husband.

The title is indeed indicative of how strongly I feel about my newly purchased Dahon Eco 3.

I bought the folding bicycle from St Kilda Cycles on 6 September, rushing down that evening after work from Caulfield to the store. Initially having my eyes set on the Mu Sl (approximately $1000), I was blown away by the Eco 3 when I took it for a quick ride around since they didn't have a Mu Sl already assembled.

Now, I must admit that I'm not the most thorough of bike-riding… Continue

First Ever REAL Commute!

I took about 45min each way, of which I am rather proud of since I never really exercised and my knees have always given me problems while doing any form of exercise.

I think I recognise the photo, pretty sure I went past you in the opposite direction on the mud-covered bike track between Huntingdale and Oakleigh stations. Hope the commutes are going well.

G'day Sandra. Wot a surprise to meet you. Wasn't intending to market just providing info about UNO :) Trust your first commute goes well. Use the footpath if you feel unsafe. Get in touch if you want someone to show you around Melbourne by bike paths. There is lots to explore and I could do with getting more miles in my legs. Go well. C'ya Alan
