Day 9 Smashed it!

10 May 2016 8:17am (3 years ago)

The aim today was to break the sub 40 minute ride to work, and I SMASHED IT!

Yesterday, I was a little gutted  that I missed the sub 40 minute commute. So today I put a number of things in place:

  1. Got up early, to avoid joggers - turns out that there weren't many anyway because of the rain
  2. Made sure my bag was lighter - left my laptop at work
  3. Played some good high tempo music - Daft Punk's Alive 2007

It was still raining and didn't know what to wear, so I put on my rain coat, which is brilliant for festivals, walking, etc but in no way useful for cycling.

Today is also Global Bike to work day.
