With spring warming on the country road cyclists flooded. How many times as you pull in traffic, throw envious glances at the drivers' velomashin "who famously and briskly seep past the convoy along a narrow track between the road and the curb and hide behind the horizon as you advance only half a length ahead of the present vehicle.

Although we have yet oh, how far from the organized cycling with dedicated bikeways, traffic lights and civilized velostoyankami I dare this season to experiment and fashionable buy a bicycle. Total 3 hundred conventional units, and I hold on to the steering wheel miracle machine on two wheels. Yeah, to me it is not that simple "piece of iron" with two pedals, which I was in the childhood.
