I had a pretty good cycle home today. I’m pleased that I managed to cycle in and back both yesterday and today. I reckon I could probably do it again tomorrow as well but my legs are starting to feel a bit tired so I think I’ll stick to my plan and have a rest day tomorrow.
I left my desk at 15:50 today, set off on my bike at 16:00 and got to Waterloo at 16:35. I walked into my flat at 17:00. I’m really pleased with this, I used to allow an hour to get home on public transport even though it usually took me around 45 minutes (40 if I was really lucky). The hour it took me today includes locking my bike up in the garage at the flat but does not include getting changed at work.
What makes this even better is that there was a really gusty strong head wind today that really made pedalling difficult – especially up the hill over Tower Bridge.
I am pretty happy with the route that I am using now and am getting more confident with the traffic. I think that I might still use the Thames Path route in the morning when it’s not busy to avoid the roads and because it’s a much nicer route.
Next week I am only at work 3 days so I plan to do the same as I have done today on all three days – cycle from and to Waterloo. The week after that I’ll maybe see about cycling all the way home.
