Two bicycles are operational. :)
My brompton survived the giant suitcase. On my first morning, I took it to the end of a pier for the sunrise. It was a foggy day. (That smear of orange is the rising sun.)
The kona has been put together again after it's sea freight ordeal. The front disc rotor was badly knocked askew but luckily the mechanics at Velopro are friendly, fast and efficient.
This morning, I took the bicycle for a ride up to the Gibraltar road route intending to see how far I could go.
I made it to the start of the route... and that's how far I could go. HA!
There be mountains here!! I was panting in granny gear a few times to make it to the beginning of Gibraltar. A nice lady on her way to meet friends was very encouraging and urged me along. I forgot to bring water and I was wearing too much for the sun and heat. I'm just happy I made it to the start of the road, a paltry 5k from my apartment.

This is going to be a fun breaking in period for my legs and spirit.
