So today, the 4th of April was the first day of me “sticking it to TFL” and cycling to work. The ride to work was very uneventful; quite slow as I have not ridden a bike in a while, but I got there with minimal fuss. No w*nkers cutting me up, nobody tried to kill me on the road.
I prepared for the journey quite diligently last night; I packed my riding glasses, various bike locks (including my sold secure silver Kryptonite series 2 D-lock), a full change of clothes, etc. One thing I neglected to remember about bike riding is that it gets really quite cold due to wind chill. So despite the fact that I was wearing a T-shirt, a wooly jumper and a hi vis, I was still quite cold. It wasn’t all that bad however, as before long I was in central London, locking my bike up outside my gym. I went to the gym and had a good old shower and changed into my work attire and went to work.
Pukka! (as they say).
