November 06, 2008
Well it got cold and I very nearly chickened out and retired the Brommie for the winter... but then it got warm (ish) again so i am glad I am still on it.
A couple of times I have come in the car and I really do hate those traffic jams. Does nothing for my state of mind. Coming on the bike may be a little more complicated than jumping in a car each morning but at least I get to work feeling ready for the day ahead.
I am losing weight, getting fitter, saving money and helping the planet all at the same time - what could be better!
I have also decided not to buy a small car to get me through the worst of the winter. I'll get a taxi to the station near my house, train to Canley and then walk from there to Uni - it's not far at all. My wonderful husband has also promised to pick me up from my local station every night. So no need to buy another hunk of polluting metal!
But in the meantime I will keep biking for as long as I can.
