But I rarely ride those now, whereas I cycle  a lot.

I live in central Prague, Czechia, which is _extremely_ bike-unfriendly.
It's even worse than London. But I do the 4 miles to work, and 4 miles

No wife, although working on it, no kids, but still... if I didn't bike,

tibia, fibula, femur and hip, fracture to right shoulder, dislocated left
shoulder, whiplash), but I still ride both when I can.
