    I have just moved out of my parents house into a new flat. Yippee, liberated freedom and all that
    malarkey. Downside is all the bills, rent, costs, etc. And the biggest downside is my cycle commute
    has shrunk from 7.5 miles to a measly 1.5 miles. Some one in a previous post said take the scenic
    route, but that is the scenic route. If I go straight to work it's only half a mile to get there. Oh
    well, I suppose the fact that I can come home drenched in mud after a good trail blaze and not get
    moaned at is a good thing. Unless the other half finds out. :eek:(

    Thanks for listening to prattle on.

    It must be a very small island you live on if 1.5 miles is the longest alternative route you can
    find between home and work.

    You'll be amazed at how much cycling you will now want to do at the weekend.

    I suppose my 8-feet doesn't count, as the effort of getting my bike onto the upstairs landing is
    more than the effort of cycling along the landing to my office!! :p
