    Hiya all

    Well, I'm going to brave it thanks to the support of Kiwiavanger cycling with me.
    I'm going to in the first time in my working life, cycle to work.

    I must admitt I'm a tad scared as thinking of what can happen as i have seen while driving other car drivers be idiots towards cyclist so hear goes nothing.

    Wish me luck

    Dee ;)

    Go steady :smile: be careful of gaps. Cars let other cars through regardless of whether you're part of the deal!

    Be aware and anticipate :smile: but enjoy it. It's very satisfying riding past 50 cars stuck standing still.

  8. Dee,

    You should have gone to bed earlier with such a big day, today.

    Good luck - and I suggest longer and flat for a first commute.
