Four Wheels Good, Two Wheels Better

I bike to work.

Which is great for me, 'cos I'm lucky to live close enough to the office to be able to do this. Cue this week's lyric:

I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like
— Queen
I realise I'm in a fortunate position, but I'm surprised that more people don't do it. If you live within 3 or 4 miles of work, why not give it a go? It's good exercise, quite good fun, and effectively free.

Drive, She Said

By the way, thanks go to Thomas's Cycles of Foxhall Road, Ipswich, for keeping my Raleigh Pioneer roadworthy, and for putting up with my complete indifference to basic maintenance.

If You Take Away With You Nothing Else
This week's moral is fourfold:

  1. get on your bike & ride!
  2. if you're out driving, give cyclists enough room
  3. do feel free to honk anyone riding with no lights
  4. brush off those old Queen albums
Be seeing you!
