I had an absolutely beautiful ride into work this morning. It was hot and there was a strong, gusty wind, but the lack of traffic on the road more than made up for this.
At one stage, pedalling up Kensington High Street, there was barely a car in sight. An open stretch of bitumen, sticky from the heat, never seemed more inviting. How lovely to have a whole lane to myself and not be worried about whether I was holding anyone up.
It wasn’t until I got to work that it dawned on me. The school holidays have started and everyone’s on vacation.
Let’s just hope it stays like this for the rest of the summer. I love having the road to myself!
