I don't wear anything specialist to cycle to work.
The thought of lycra makes me shudder.
As long as I can get a coat over it, pretty much anything goes.
I take my inspiration from glamorous cycling bloggers like this one.
So it made me smile when my son got in from school.
"My PE teacher was impressed when he saw you cycling to work this morning mum. He asked me if you cycle all the way to work. In those boots."
I looked down and for the first time saw myself as others do.
But actually cycling in heels is much more sensible than it sounds.
When I have to stop, my feet hit the ground so much quicker.
Today I thought I would share my cycle to work with you before it gets too dark in the mornings.
A mile from home and I hit three miles of cycle track.
|Three miles in and it's time to meet the horses.|
Sometimes they come to the fence.
|Almost four miles and by the RAF base.|
|I have missed out the three miles of road and I am just a mile away here as I take a short cut through the hospital and past the pond.|
|Competing for space with the pigeons.|
|Just one minute away.|
|And finally, after 8.5 miles and 45 minutes I am here.|
