    Why not cycle every day? It gets you fit and accustoms you to different weather!

    ^ This. Get out on the bike as much as you like, the more you do the more you'll want to do it seems.

    Listen to the body and go as often as you want; want being the operative word. Subscribing to "should dos" is a sure fire way to turn cycling into a chore.

    Plus, dont be afraid to adapt your ride on the hoof. I've lost count of the number of times I've been "up" for a ride, set out for a decent stint, but after a few miles realised that I probably wasn't as up for it as I thought and a planned 50 turned into a leisurely 5. Equally theres been times when I've thought I cant be bothered to put in much of a shift, I'll just spin the legs for a few miles to get some fresh air, but once in the saddle felt so comfortable that the opposite happens.
