Well I'm off to the LBS tomorrow as I have decided it is time to start riding to work now the days are getting a but longer. Got some cash for Xmas so I am going to get myself a pair of SPD shoes and pedals, a set of lights and a deuter race X rucksack. Have the usual clothes and stuff and a lock. Any thing else I should think about? Been checking out the facilities at work this week too. Large bike shed on right side of the security hut, found a couple of showers I never knew existed (I've only worked there 5 years!) and I have claimed squatters rights on a locker (it's massive too, must be 6 foot tall, with shelf and peg already in it). Think I might start next Friday as we have an early finish so should get home mostly in the light. Not too keen to ride in the dark at the moment. Might get more confidence when I start the commute.
