    Wow, the great weather really helped me enjoy the commute to work this morning on the bike. Thought i'd just let you all know! It seems i'm getting the bug.

    A fellow cyclist even chased after me to ask where I got my tabard from! So i thought I'd do my bit here and promote the cause!
    More cyclists - less cars! we need to take over the roads LOL!

    ditto. I normally commute at silly times of the day like 05:00am or 23:00 due to my shift patterns but I am on a training course today so I left at 0715 and actually saw more than a couple of other cyclists. Including one guy on a spesh tarmac whom I sort of raced for a couple of miles down uxbridge rd.

    Lovely ride in, even the Stourbridge ring road seemed quiet, coming over the M42 bridge at Catshill and seeing the traffic queued made it even sweeter !

    Lovely commute. All the more better because traffic seemed to be more snarled up as usual. :biggrin:

    I made the mistake of wearing my dhb 3/4s - it was much too hot for that, even at 6:30am...

    It is lush today. First time I've actually cycled in to work in the morning in just a t-shirt (and of course my shorts before I get any funny comments), normally have a light jacket on as I find it a bit chilly.

    Shorts for me also today. Lovely ride in at 6.30 a.m. Rode through the local park too - so peaceful with just me, the ducks and a couple of joggers.

    Can't wait to ride home tonight!!!
