My bike was broke. And Anke is a true networker. So she not only lent me her spare bike, but also told a friend that she could buy my broken bike for a bargain and let it repair.
Everybody happy! Her friend Ans has a bike that is functioning perfectly well now (and hopefully will not be stolen as her former bikes), I was able to cycle into town a couple of times and Anke loves to be an intermediate.
Today I returned the bicyle and could say ‘see you again’ to Anke and her husband.
