I miss having my own bike when I’m in London, so I always take advantage on when I’m home and steal my mums! Cycled to Penarth today from Cardiff, 30km round trip. On track to cycling 100km in one day by the end of the year, love it.
I know, I’m a talented photographer! (Or stupid..) but anyhow, here’s a photo of Claire and I mid cycle! We ended up doing 15km which is quite good going for under an hour! Great excessive and great catch up, loved it.
…literally. This scene greeted me this fine, chilly morning! I’m so grateful for the Barclay’s Bike man that turned up on a warmer saddle and let me have his bike! He was my saviour for myself and my backside’s warmth.
It’s a break day for running today, so I decided to go for a cycle at lunch instead. I was going to head to Piccadilly to pick up my train tickets for friday, but I think it’s too far for an hours trip so I headed to The London Eye again and had a wanderContinue reading “04/09/2012 – Sunny Eye”
Went on another cycle at lunchtime today, but as I’m using Boris (Barcleys) Bikes, you have to dock it at the other end, and today there wasn’t one free.

Today I bought this beauty – my new bike helmet! Decided that since I to commute in London to work by bike, I best get a helmet. I’m happy with my choice from Halfords, and shall feel a lot more confident on the roads!
Tidied up the last tonight, found all of my Barclay’s Bikes receipts, seems like I cycle, a lot. In the… just over three weeks (wow) I’ve lived in London, I’ve hired a bike 32 times, not including the receipts I’ve just thrown away. My yearly bike ‘key’ should arrive tomorrow, fingers crossed!
Had to take my PC in today to get looked at, and got told I’d have to take it away again to get everything off it as they’ll have to wipe it clean. This sparked off a lot of stress as I have a big brief to complete for an interview, so to let out someContinue reading “26/05/2012”
