This week I’ve properly discovered riding my bike to work.
Yes, riding to work. How long have I been riding bikes? Seems I always drive (because I have to visit a client or something) or I walk, it’s only a mile and a half after all.
If I ride, it takes 10 bloody minutes!!!! The best thing is, I don’t end up wanting to kill people like I do if I drive.
Down the road, turn right at the tip, along the cycle path through the woods, done. Work. Big sprint home again. Yeh.
Can you still get bicycle clips?
good. I wear posh trousers for work, y’see.
i tuck em into my socks so i look like rad dood to all the students at work 🙂
(it is not working)
I know halfords have them. But with riding off-road I’d be tempted to wear waterproof trousers over my posh trousers, otherwise they will be mucky!
I’ll wave as I pass today on my way between school!
[disbelief}You don’t want to kill people when you cycle to work??[/disbelief]
I can ride between home and work mostly off road.
Nervous Rex in the village will sell them.
Great Stuff! Its the shape of the future you know!
Now all you have to do is encourage more of your colleagues 😉
Skip the bike clips. Go with the calf length MTB shorts and simply swap’em when you get in. You could even leave a couple of pairs of posh trousers at work…
