"But Dan, why have you waited so long to ride a bike?" Well Internet, let me tell you....I was waiting for the snow to melt before I embarked on a cycling adventure. Today was a gorgeous day, in Oss. The sun was shining and I think temps got into the 5s (°C), a virtual heat wave! Oh, and we also needed toliet paper. So, I thought the quickest way to the City Hotel, our toliet paper supplier/owner operator of our apartment was by bike.
I think it was a good first attempt. However, I still have NO IDEA how to make left turns. As a result, I took a reaaaaalllly long way home to the apartment since it was composed of all right hand turns.
I may have disobeyed some ordinances on my joyride around town. A minute into my ride, I blew a red bicycle traffic light (they have them here). However, the bus that was about to turn right as I was proceeding just stayed put and yielded to me. That's power, my friends. Apparently the cyclist always has the right of way. My next challenge can be seen here:
Here's more from my journey around Oss.
SORRY FOR THE VERTICAL VIDEOS. I'LL DO BETTER NEXT TIME.
