On Your Bike

It was back to work yesterday and I started the new term as I mean to go on - cycling as much as possible.
It is 8.1 miles to work and takes me about 40 minutes.
I got my new bike on the Cycle To Work scheme last year but always had an excuse not to ride.
This picture was taken at 7.55am in the morning and I had arrived at my desk before 8.40am.
It was a lovely way to start the day as there is cycle track for half the way and the roads were fairly quiet.
I was battling the wind all the way home and it was uphill but I didn't mind as it meant I could  have a guilt-free glass of wine (or two) tonight.

I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Trousers - M and Co
Mac - M and Co
Top - Oasis
Bag - Marks & Spencer
Bike - Ridgeback


  1. Looking good kid, bet they were all jealous of your tan!

  2. How nice that you are close enough to ride to work! I really wish I was close enough to ride.

    Have fun and be safe!

  3. That's great, I love cycling as well! I cycled to the capital yesterday (just under 40 miles) - it was sizzling hot and extremely windy but I made it...

  4. Two glasses? You deserve a bottle! What a great achievement! x

  5. I was on my bike today - looking a lot less elegant than you! I had my little one in her seat on the back which added another 2 1/2 stone to lug about! Good for the workout though! A lovely way to start the day- good for you! X

  6. Good for you!!! What a great idea to fit a regular exercise plan into your week. I just love the feeling when the endorphins kick in after the heart stops pounding. It's so relaxing.

    Best of luck to you to keep it going. The rewards are wonderful. Don't forget to wear your helmet!

  7. I admire you for biking to work. I am not comfortable riding around any kind of traffic but DH rides his bike everywhere.


  8. Blimey well done, your very good. Stylish and good with fitness.

  9. Well done Jane! I haven't ridden a bike for 30 years, though they say you never forget, don't they? I'd be terrified of the traffic now though. xxxx

  10. I am very impressed! I have a very long commute and could not possibly bike the entire way in less than 4 hours!
