    I wouldn't be brave enough to cycle on the roads to where I work and that's mostly just country lanes. **** cycling through the city during rush hour, I wouldn't last long :lol:
    I've been cycling recreationally for over a decade in total but I stopped when I came to uni.
    It's very different in a city, a completely new world to somebody pedalling along down the country lanes of Yorkshire

    ****, does anyone else sometimes get worried about getting old? Like, at times I think I just need to get my **** together and start actually trying to put an adult life together.

    Let's be honest, some cyclists are absolute tools; not paying attention to cars around them and not giving respect to the rules of the road.
    It only takes a small proportion of irresponsible cyclists for motorists to stereotype them as fools who shouldn't be on the road.

    Most cyclists know exactly what they're doing; so much so that you'll probably drive right past and barely remember them. You remember the idiots that don't indicate and the ones that cycle in the middle of the road.

    I would strongly wager that there is actually a much higher proportion of stupid drivers than stupid cyclists

    All the time. Noticed it when I was about 22.

    Yeah, it's a bit unnerving thinking about the future. I'm very close to getting my career sorted, but the problem is that the career impacts & makes it a lot more difficult when it comes to meeting someone & wanting to start a family.

    Time gets away from you sometimes and you're just left thinking "****, where did that go?". I'm too young to feel this old ffs

    Constantly. When my Dad was my age he was married and owned a house ffs. I'll be lucky to have done either by the time i'm 40.

    It really hits home when virtually all the players you watched growing up as a kid are either retired, about to retire or in management.

    I remember Rooney's debut at 16 like it was 5 minutes ago and he's 30 in a few months ffs.

    I don't remember his debut, but I remember him at Everton. And Alan Smith banging them in for Leeds, he's 34 now!

    I remember Smith's first season at Leeds as a fresh faced teenager. Kewell broke through around the same time.

    Oh and Michael Bridges :lol:

    Cycling in the city is easy and quicker than driving, and all PT except tube. Depends on your pre/post tube journey time as well ofc. Nothing to really worry about from drivers, cycle lanes and bus lanes everywhere nowadays. When I am in traffic it's not hard to keep up, just accelerating from stand still is usually slower than cars, and hills are tiring.

    Does anyone here cycle to work/uni/school?

    Been considering it recently, it'll take me around an hour.

    Pros:-
    I'll save the £130ish I spend per month on my oyster.
    It'll start my day off with exercise of some sort.
    Would also up my stamina (which I would want to get back in to sports)
    Wouldn't really get caught up in delays on the train (not that it happens, but when it does it ****s you over)
    Wouldn't have people up in my face on the jubilee line.
    Won't roast on the trains in the summer too

    Cons:-
    Theres that possibility of getting ****ed by the London traffic..
    Weather could be a ***** to me some days too.
    Summer weather, ideal. Buy a nice used road bike and a proper bag/rack attachment. Spend at least 200 - that's 1.5 months of your oyster. Resale is high - I bought mine for 130 and could easily get 150 for it today. Get familiar with your bike, get slick tires fitted for summer, get used to gear changes etc. Wear a helmet.

    Traffic ****ing isn't really something to be afraid of. Give it a trial run to see how you like it. Avoid hills in your route. Don't be afraid of tiring - if you do, you can just park and get on tube. As for weather just keep a Mac in a bag type jacket, and wear cycling clothes not work clothes on your route.

    I used to cycle 9 miles to winter placement, I bought my bike just for it, and it was a great decision. The first day I went 4.5 miles and the hills had tired me so I got on a bus. The next day I wasn't tired at all after the 18m there and back. I wasn't in good shape at all, body just responds and it's not even that demanding really, just hills kill your strength.
