    France has a low-tech version of this (the Reddit images link was the first on Google) where the speed limit is higher in good weather. https://i.redd.it/vwiiufzw60i11.jpg

    Thanks! I have some transferable fitness I think from running, hence why I don’t find it so tiring. I think if I came at it from no cardio (not saying that’s your position at all) I would find it...

    Thanks! I have some transferable fitness I think from running, hence why I don’t find it so tiring. I think if I came at it from no cardio (not saying that’s your position at all) I would find it a big struggle so I’m glad I’ve had that base!

    Me! The past year or so I had a weekly commute that was doable by bike (7.5-8mi each way) so did that, whilst driving the 20mi by car the other four days.

    Now, I’m working closer to home with a commute that’s 6mi each way. Takes about 35-40 mins there and 30-35mins back (there’s a big hill near the end on the way to work!)

    I’m enjoying it. I get to work feeling energised, I need less caffeine, and it doesn’t take me much longer than driving would due to traffic. I also get my exercise for the day done in a time-efficient way. As the weather gets nicer and the days longer into the summer, and I get used to cycling daily more, I think I’ll start going for a run before cycling home as well.

    As others have said, I am very conscious about making myself very visible - lots lights, fluorescent jacket, the works. Got to be seen to be safe!

    Having a nice weekend with my wife. Been on a very busy set of shifts recently (work as a doctor) so haven’t seen her as much as I’d like.
    Tonight - curry and some good beer, then the rest of the weekend doing some more nice things like going for a walk and cooking at home. Just what I need!
