Wednesdays Commute

23 02 2010

I have an event in London to attended on Thursday so thought I would cycle there. The route I’m following is not a lot of fun, but at nearly 120 miles I can’t navigate on back roads using Google map walking directions printed on the numerous bits of paper! But, I should see parts of the country I’m unfamiliar with, and get to play with London traffic…yepee!

Not commuting grasshopper….

“Commuting is regular travel between one’s place of residence and place of work or full time study.”

Good point! However, as I don’t have a regular place of work, but I do travel regularly to irregular places, does that count? Or do I need two regulars for it to be commuting?

Have fun 🙂 I haven’t ridden the A422, but the B4100 between Warwick and Oxford very pleasant (bar a couple of short stabbing hills you’ll be better equipped to deal with than me). You might try that.

That would be a better alternative, but I can get to Banbury down the A442 without thinking about it and I don’t know the B4100.

But it does give me an idea for a 100 miles Wednesday ride sometime, heading to Banbury then over the Cotswolds to Chipping Campden and back to Brum via Welford and Tanworth.

Heh – when I first rode the B4100 I was riding down to Oxford, missed a turn in the dark, and had to improvise. It’s actually dead easy, because you just have to keep following the signs to Banbury.
