A record of my cycling trips in Britain and abroad



It was a lovely day this morning - perhaps the summer is finally here! And I’ve measured my commute: 5 km on the nose to the site gate, and another 550 m to the bike shed outside my building. It takes me 14 min on average, for a speed of 23.8 km/hr. Not bad considering the state of the cycle path! I can shave off 90 s by going along the road, which I’ll do if I’m in a hurry, but for day-to-day commuting I think I’ll stick to the cycle path. I need to measure the distance along the river path - that isn’t cyclable really on a road bike, but would make a nice route to run in.
