Hello everyone! Just picked up my lovely new hybrid which came through the Cyclescheme. I'm in Barnet so there's plenty of good riding round this way. I've not ridden since I was a student (quite a long time ago) and have just got fed up with the tube, so decided I might try cycling in. It's about 10 miles towards London with a couple of steep slopes, but I'm feeling very positive and optimistic. I'm going to break myself in gently - couple of miles around here every day to...er...firm everything up, and then take the plunge in a few weeks. I can see there's plenty of advice and stories to read here so I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time round these parts.

Hi - good luck with the commuting. Are you going to be doing this in the winter as well?
My commute is about 15 miles but can't set up a shower at work so haven't commuted on the bike.

Well, we'll just have to see. Most of my colleagues are cyclists, we don't have a shower, yet most of them seem fresh as daisies almost regardless of weather. I'll have to grill them for secrets and advice. Thanks for your encouragement.
