Strangely enough it was a fairly uneventful commute today. If anything the road seemed much quieter, both this morning and this evening, and there were certainly much fewer cyclists around.
Tonight, for instance, at one of the busier intersections where cyclists normally jockey for position and the more idiotic element sail through the red lights, I was the only person on a bike. I have to confess to liking it. It meant I didn't have to worry about twits underpassing me or holding me up and I could steal a firm march on the motorised traffic behind me when the lights turned green.
I got home in double-quick time, despite the rather annoying head wind for much of my route. If only all my commutes were as easy and enjoyable.
