Re: If you had to pedal..
I had to pedal about 7 miles when my engine died, with the clutch not fully disengaged (come loose a little), just grazing across whatever's inside, mostly flat surface and uphill, in the sun, no sunscreen, t-shirt on, and my camel pack, whilst sitting on a rock solid seat (felt like I had prostate, I could not sit down for a few days after this event)
I will pedal for as long as I need to.
I was lucky a carpenter was working next to the house I had to go and he was able to give me a lift back to the station.
Just so you know, I've lost my fitness...
