Hi Les. If you would like to borrow a bike to get you around in the meantime, I can lend you one of ours. We have plenty between us, and you can borrow my 300 to get around town, or do the Round The Bay. Really no problems this end. We have plenty of ride options here - and I can feel the pain of not being able to ride!
