Finished my ride for the day…

See my Strava Riding report for 2017.  All in all a good year.  No serious accidents this year, Yippee!

… and take the lane

You gotta fight!  For your right!  To … cyyyyyyycle! When cycling on a busy road it is tempting to ride right up to the curb, and in reality, other vehicles might try to force you over there.  But on a busy road you are well within your rights to cycle in the middle of the lane so you can see the road.  This doesn’t need to be done all the time, but where there are many parked cars, or a blind right turn ahead, it’s usually a safer position for you to be riding in.

What I love

What I love about cycling, in order: 1. Everything.

The ride

Some do the ride even though they can’t do the ride, and eventually they can do the ride.  Some never do the ride, and can never do the ride.
