..but since I left my bike at work... I had to take the dreaded Tube... only 8 stops and each stop was a living hell of bacteria, colds, cough and stinkin' armpits.  :sick:

after 2 return trips where I got totally soaked, I just did not have the willpower for it today.

I am however, getting very, very comfortable with the scooter, which is not a good thing! Am going to try and ride tomorrow depending on the how much ice I thing we will have

They said Winter Was Coming overnight.

My bridge opened at 07:29 after being closed all day yesterday, and it was +2.

I'm not yet hard enough to shrug off a cold wet commute, especially as I'm still trying to shift a cough which has been around for too long.

I thought I was strong enough to return running with my friends on a Saturday morning. Well, I'm not. My hamstring went 'boing' after half a mile. Limped back to my car. The bike ride I was going to do yesterday never happened, and I didn't leave the house.

Limped into work this morning.

But I'm taking a gaggle of girls out to dinner, so the cattle car it is.

After getting pushed around all over the road last night I decided conditions were such that it qualified as 'ruddy silly', trains seem to be unpredictable and I had the offer of a lift, so gas guzzling dinosaur it was.

Seeing as my Schwalbe Ice Spikers proved rather not up to the task on snow & slush yesterday, I reluctantly drove in today & I sailed through. First time I've been 40 minutes early for this crap job!

It is four month since I managed to commute normally.   I had a very bad cold around Christmas sitting in my throat. So I did not try again until February almost restarted then my crank snapped.  I swapped bikes.  Red bike was not running well so it got me to work :-).  As I set off I noticed the flange of the rear hub had snapped. So I walked it to the station. Green bike had very worn brake pads so I could not use that until I got some new ones.  So I go off on my ski holiday. Two days skiiing then I go shopping.  On the way back I step off the edge of a firm snowy path and my right leg disappeared twisting my left knee.

So for the past few weeks I have been using train and bike.  One or two more weeks and I will be fine (but fat).

Running too late to get the train I wanted in with my bike and the later train I can't be certain of room for bike.

I fair-weathered walked into work this morning. Stayed dryer, and as I put little faith in car drivers nowadays, I doubted their ability to concentrate on a wet Monday morning, with heavy squally wind-blown rain diverting their concentration to manoeuvre their children to school.

I could not commute today because I am retired.

Must change name.

On the contrary, your name is now more appropriate than ever; just one metre of commute would be too far!

I'm working tomorrow and may consider the cage given the forecast and total absence of trains all day  ??? but I always feel guilty driving into the city  :-\

Well today is tomorrow and am at work, working would be stretching it. The trains thing is a strike and I'm tired to the point of feeling really low so couldn't face the bike. Mrs S needs the cage, so a lift it was, that's a double dose of guilt and I'm now overdrawn in the brownie point account  :(
