    Have you tried a recumbent? (Or Squidward's bike, as I think of it) or a tandem? I've actually used neither but would love to try them :D

    I had my first post-COVID school experience (well, a 3-hour Computer Science seminar) yesterday, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I enjoyed having some face-to-face contact with my teachers & classmates, I found the seminar very useful, and on the whole, I’m going to go out and say that it felt remarkably normal!

    As good as Zoom is, and as much as I mostly embrace the digital revolution; if there’s one thing this whole period has taught me, it’s that nothing can truly replace face-to-face teaching in a school context!

    Just done 16km on my new bike and very pleased with myself. Trying to shift a bit of weight after turning 30 and that's the longest bit of exercise I've done in years!

    During lockdown, i have found myself going out on the bike more often, as i am trying to lose some weight for a trip to Orlando. This has been moved from October this year to Sept/Oct next year, so i have more time to achieve it now. I am starting to feel a bit fitter but they main benefit for me is that mentally, i feel so much happier and motivated for the future. I pretty sure its the cycling doing that because i get a sense of relaxation whilst cycling, eventhough i'm pedalling like the clappers. Definitely a fan of cycling. Also, i want to fit nicely into some of my Hawaian shirts again ha.

    Congrats @Burbs, all the best for your BA.

    The mental benefits are incredible, it's so rewarding. I love the more adventurous side of it too. Been pushing myself on some downhill trails with some decent sized jumps lately.

    After an incredibly tough (and disrupted) year, I have officially passed the PGCE course at Warwick University and am a qualified primary school teacher :)

    Can't wait to get started; just need to find a school willing to put up with me now :tearsofjoy:

    It’s been an incredibly long few months, but tonight, I’ve finally seen my boyfriend for the first time since January. You have no idea how happy I am.

    I can see that there should be an image in your post but it won't display it. Please can you describe the image.

    I think it’s probably just the heart emoji. Tapatalk’s emojis and Apple’s emojis don’t really talk to each other terribly well. :p
