So today was my first day riding most of the way in. Had to give yesterday a miss since i needed to drive to parents after work and pick some stuff up.
I thought it was 12 miles but after a check on google it is only 9 miles. It took me 33 minutes with a couple of stops at traffic lights, whih works out at about 16mph average (with a gentle tail wind). Energy levels seemed surprisingly good. Although the wind will be picking up through the day so it will be a bit harder on the way back.
Set off at 7:20 from parking the car and got to work, showered, had some cereal and at my desk by 8:25
Will see how tonight goes, the full route from my house is 17.8 miles, so twice as far nearly. Hoping to give this a go when i have some new tyres!
