    Do you cycle to work or just for sport/fun?

    No I don't cycle to work.I do it for a number of reasons keeping fit probably the main reason,then there's the social side of cycling,I've met and got to know a lot people on my rides.Then in the summer you can go on a nice scenic ride like following an old railway line or riding along the canals or around a lake.
    This time of year though I just tend to stick to the same route,quicker I'm back the better :lol

    There's a woman that i chat to when I'm out cycling, she took it up at the beginning of the year and she looked about 13 stone, now she looks about 11 stone so she's losing weight, i don't like her electric blue leggings though, they look shocking!! :eek:

    Wow sounds great in Holland.
    It's not too bad where I live,I would hate to cycle in London though looks absolutely crazy.The main problem I have is the state of the roads potholes everywhere,we don't have many cycle lanes either.
