So I've moved house.
I lost my bike lights on the way (about £140 worth)
Not so great.
I bought some new lights after consulting with the purse-strings (i.e. wife).
I found my lost lights in the glove compartment of the car.
Yesterday was my first commute to work from the new house in Torrance. I'm used to commuting 5 miles each way, now it is 10 miles with some extra hills thrown in (one is officially 12%). So here is a video of the first half of my commute which is rural/suburban.
I think I am going to enjoy this.
Hi there, recently joined Cycle Chat and discovered this blog, enjoyable read, and some great videos too.ReplyDelete
I'm also planning a charity ride next year and have my own blog, be cool if you could add mine to your site - http://leesbigbikeride.blogspot.com/
All the best, Lee
Good video there, nice route too. Is it a trick of the footage that you appear to pedal pretty far out from the kerb a lot of the time? I pedal a lot closer to it all of the time. Not a criticism just an observation. Care to share the reasoning?ReplyDelete
Happy New Year! :-)
Check out my FAQ post. It explains a little about my road positioning. Also google for Cyclecraft by John Franklyn. A very good book about road cycling technique. :-)
Your link will be added. Good luck! :-)

That is one long commute you've got now, but the countryside bit looks lovely!ReplyDelete
Also impressed by the condition of the road despite the snow around, it was a disaster down here in London.
£140 for a front light on a bike??ReplyDelete
