For the last 2 weeks I've not been cycling into work but have been getting the train instead. This was in preparation for and recovering from the Big Red Ride.
After last week I was feeling recovered enough to ride again and I was looking forward to getting back on the bike.
The ride this morning was fantastic - it felt really easy. I smashed my record with a ride time of less than 48 minutes. Total time was less than 50:30 despite lots of traffic lights.
Previously my goal was to get the ride time under 50 minutes. I think now I'll have to try and get the door to door time under 50 minutes.
I saw my first London cycle hire bikes this morning but they were all in their docks, I've not seen any being ridden yet.
