Wow, there have been some huge spikes in daily readership recently.
I suspect that this is in no small part to a link that was posted on bikeforums.net here. I don’t use that forum or know anyone on it to thank them but a big “Cheers!” to whoever it was. I started this blog as a means to amuse myself and close friends but if it’s reaching out and spreading the cycling word more widely then I’m a happy man indeed!
There’s a great comment on one of the bikeforums replies about the fact that I still, occasionally feel the pull of the car. I have to confess that it is sometimes true and I’m glad that the option is no longer there. It is now definitely more down to my inherent laziness than it is any inexperience now in cycle commuting though.
The weather has taken a noticeable turn for the Autumnal now and my morning commute is often cold, dark and windy. When I crank my eyelids open in the dark at silly-o’clock and hear the rain beating down or the wind howling, I do run a few “what options do I have than cycling” scenarios through my head. However, I agree with what the poster on bikeforums says, in that once I’m out in it, whatever the weather, you wouldn’t get me back in a tin box for any money.
Even if I had the money for a car of my own now, I’d spend it on another bike!
