Such a gorgeous sunny day I had to cycle into work. Grazia is seven miles from home, but the ride is totally worth it. Check out the pagoda in Battersea Park! You don’t see beauties like that from the darkened windows of the tube carriage. But the best thing was just cruising peacefully along, not having to worry about cars running me over and buses belching billows of exhaust all over my face. Getting a bit excited about Cycletta now – the countryside is calling.
In the office, my deskmate Rose tells me I’m glowing. Not sweating: glowing. In fact she says I look like I’ve had a lovely healthy weekend. Actually a considerable portion of Saturday was spent rotting in bed with a stinking white wine hangover. This cycling fitness lark is paying off already.
