it was amazing.
i live about 4kms from my work, down a huge, scary, busy, bus-filled street called Bishopsgate. To add scariness factor, there's also a shitload of road works going on there (to be ready to impress the world for olympic times no doubt).
But never fear, when I got onto the big scary road, there was a huge bunch of savvy cyclists heading in the same direction and i sort of joined a gang. like a fun bunch of cycling comrades, joined together against the scary buses and evil pedestrians (how quickly one's alliances change, eh?)
My new bike is the best thing about this week. I'm almost looking forward to work tomorrow so i can join a cycling gang again.
London spring cycling is going to be awesome.
