    So, sunny weekend... kids in the street on bikes. Time to join in. Looked through the garage and dug out the python lowracer singlespeed fatbike. Rolled off the driveway, span around the cul-de-sac, spent a very pleasant few hours buzzing the kids' ankles and having fun. Wasn't too warm, so glad to be able to ride with arms crossed and hands tucked into opposite armpits :smile:

    Finishing up, Darcey says, "I didn't know you could ride that bike. I thought your record was two turns in a row."
    And then I remembered. She's right. I can't.

    So, it turns out the way to ride a python is to practice, practice, practice, get to the point where you can keep it upright between foot taps for at least some of the time, and then forget that this was as far as you got :smile:

    If we get another sunny day, videos will follow :smile:

    Yeah, there's no excuse for the lack of a selfie - considering you had nothing else to do with your hands!
