Thanks to a change of employment, I've just made the leap from weekend warrior to cycling 8miles to work (and 8 miles back) Here's a list of things I've realised after week one. 1. Your bike gets a lot dirtier, very quickly. 2. I need more clothes. 3. I need fatter tyres. 4. For fatter tyres I 'need' a new bike. 5. 75% of pedestrians are either wearing headphones or looking at their phones while walking. 6. The redways in Milton Keynes are brilliant for cycling across town without getting involved with cars and buses. 7. Redways are also brilliant for getting involved with pedestrians, dogs, cats, squirrels and bags of rubbish.
