That was the forecast here too, but I've had eight dry rides, two owls and a buzzard. Top week so far.This morning's commute in a few short words....
Rain, sleet, sixteen miles of headwind.
Still better than driving.
It's a normal survival instinct, but remind yourself what chances that they are hanging out there all day every day? Pretty slim and they left you alone after you warned them of your camera, why would they try again if they fear being recorded? Don't let them win! Also, have a heavy D-lock at the ready to clobber them with if need be(Truth is ever since that day I’m afraid to cycle past that side road anymore Incase I see the same guys)
I’ve not heard back since..
I did the whole 'buy special gear for a 7 mile commute' thing when I first started cycling, the lycra came in handy when riding with the local club and joining friends leisure rides but for a relatively short commuter ride like, I see newbies getting drawn in by the fizzy lemon stuff and die a little inside every time I see someone in a flouro high viz helmet cover. Cycling for normal people in normal clothes is massively underrated.Fed up of the faff either end of getting in and out of Lycra, i've decided to go all hipster (well as hipster as a 37 year old can be ) and get a single speed dolan with foot straps, wearing my jeans and tshirt and take it easy on the way in. 24 minutes to do 7 miles with roughly 400ft of climbing doesnt seem too bad.
