I’ve finally done what I’ve been saying I’d do since I moved to London in September 2006. I am cycling to work! My trip to work in Norwich is somewhat further than it would have been from my flat in Wapping to Canary Wharf.
One of the guys from work lives near me and also cycles in with me. The route via has house is about 5km and has quite a few steep ups and downs. The route direct from mine is slightly further but much steadier.
So either way I’m doing about 50km (31 miles) a week. It’s meant to get easier and make me feel better, but I think I’m just getting quicker and I’m really glad I bought the wet weather gear!
Now I just need to weight loss…..
