So Far So Good.....

I rode my new bike halfway(ish) to work today for the first time, covering the distance to Vauxhall in about 25 minutes. I locked it up with my Abus "Silver Standard" lock, putting a "Bronze Standard" lock round the front wheel for good measure. When I got back there at 7pm, my bike was actually still there, despite being the nicest, shinest of the pack. I got home in 20 minutes, although Oglander Road is more uphill than you think. More importantly, I got home in one piece!

Bikes will save the planet
Hey, good for you.

I've been riding mine to work on and off to work for the last year or so and saved a fortune. Of course there was that one bad accident .....but that was a pedestrian and they don't count.

Good work, Rich. Did the people on the train/tube move away from the pale, sweating, shambling wreck of a man who was gasping for breath and coughing up bits of lung (a bit like my colleagues do when I get in each morning)?

shambling wreck
Well, yesterday I just missed a train so had time to catch my breath and have a coffee before I got on the next one. Today, the scenario you describe happened!
