Mission was to do a small shop for Mrs M in North Finchley. She has been disabled by a bad accident and is making a good recovery but needs help with her shopping. British Red Cross has referred her to Goodgym Barnet and we are glad to help. It took me under an hour to cycle, collect the shopping ( from Aldi ), deliver the shopping to her flat and return home. That was 25 minutes of cycling about 7 km. I was averaging about 16 km/h probably faster than any car could possibly have done that journey at that time of day. Let alone the faff and or cost of parking! Simples! I get my exercise she gets her shopping!
