I haven’t been out on my bike much this winter… mainly due to frosty roads and a busy schedule.
In the winter months, it is key to leave yourself enough time to set off late in the morning (when it warms up and the frost clears away). I clearly got too comfortable with all the warm long days the UK Summer and Autumn have to offer… as a result, I didn’t give myself enough time in the day to fit both a bike ride in the morning and something social in the afternoon.
Clear your schedule – enjoy the sleep in – and plan something social for the evenings instead!
Yesterday, Dan and I got away for a nice ride and ended up at Gail’s Artisan Bakery in St. John’s Wood. We had a lovely croissant and espresso just before heading home — a perfect start to getting back in the habit of cycling on the weekends.
Role on next weekend!

Great advice, unfortunately I have to be at work before 5 am so I can’t really follow it! Honestly though I love riding in the early morning when no one else is out and about.
I couldn’t agree more!! Early rides are definately the most rewarding when the weather is in our favour x
