The weather for the past week has been absolutely sweltering here in London. With temperatures in the mid-30s and grass fires burning in rural England, I feel like I’m still living in Australia — minus the ice-cold beer and the mosquitoes!
The decision that confronts me each morning is this: do I get all hot and sticky on the back of a bike, or do I get all hot and sticky in a tube carriage?
This past week, I tried both options — twice each in fact — and I’ve come to the conclusion that the cycling option is by far the better. It takes a long time to cool down at the end of the ride, but the process of commuting is much more enjoyable than being sandwiched in a carriage with hundreds of other hot and sticky bodies. And the air circulation is a little better too!
