12 Cycle to work
I began cycling to work last summer (it’s only five miles and it’s usually quicker than driving). I did it because I felt I wasn’t getting enough exercise. It was also because driving and taking public transport through London is expensive and stressful. My journey to work is fun now. Some of it involves busy roads (where I find myself overtaking queues of cars). But I’ve also discovered some nice quiet signposted cycle routes through back streets. I feel healthier and my leg muscles are definitely stronger than they were.
