I’m not normally someone who honks their own horn, as it were, but I got a mention in Typepad’s newsletter and blog last week in a post headed Typepad Tours London. As a consequence the number of visitors to this site has trebled, and I’ve been shamed into actually updating it after a two-week hiatus. How typical.
So, if you’re a new visitor, bear in mind I do a lot of ranting here. Cycling in London is nowhere near as dangerous as you might believe, although the way I bang on about the idiots on the road you might be forgiven for thinking otherwise!
I first started cycling in August 2005 — you can read my first post here — and I haven’t looked back since.
I don’t propose to be an expert cyclist or even a dedicated one (I only cycle to work two or three times a week, I blame my lazy gene and inability to get out of bed in the morning), but it has revolutionised my life. I feel fitter, happier, less stressed and more toned. And I no longer have to find time to go to the gym.
If you’re here because you’re considering becoming a commuter, give it a bash, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
