Looking for some motivation from others that ride to work.
I live 17 miles away from the office, and by summer i would like to be riding most if not all the way in. Its relatively flat and would all be on road/cycle lanes.
Currently im chucking my bike in the car, riding the first 12 miles, parking up and getting on my bike for the last 5 miles. It takes me about 20 minutes to ride in from there.
Im riding a hardtail MTB with knobblies at fairly low pressures (35-40psi). I would like to get a road bike to make it easier but can't afford one at the moment. May end up getting some slicker tyres for the MTB though.
I'm also quite lazy and when its windy/raining i tend to just drive to work.
So, how far do you ride?
What sort of bike?
Obviously i need to MTFU and stop been lazy. We are doing the GCC at work in a couple of weeks and i have been volunteered to be the captain so any more riding will help motivate others in the team (hopefully)
