first ride

The trike went for its first (non pushed) trip out of the shed today, the chain is rusty, sounds horrible, and the deralia has no cable and is poorly adjusted, but it moves!!! and it feels nice and rigid.
100m down, several million to go, unproven desighn, remote arias, harsh conditions, and some idealistic goal to do it withoult burning fossil fuels, what could go wrong!!!
