I cycled in to work for the first time since last August (I think). Certainly the first time in ages.
The smell of wild garlic, the permanent hubub of birds flying around both made me forget that I was actually cycling fairly slowly. ;-)
Last year I put a road-triple on my hack/communting bike so that I now have 30/21 gear (about 38.6 inches) which makes it a lot easier than struggling up the big hills around Bath in a 39/21 (about 50.1 inches) which is impossible when you're not fit or haven't cycled for a while.
(OK, so it's not impossible, but you're at Level 4 all the way and at a low cadence).
Hopefully, I'll start cycling in and keep cycling in a few times a week.
