Commuting

All this week I have been cycling to work at Tonbridge, a round trip of about 25.5 miles. Back in the 80’s and 90’s I commuted into the City of London from the suburbs, wearing a pollution mask and sharing the roads with buses, lorries and taxis. Commuting through the lanes of Kent is a whole different experience!

All this week, the weather has been gloriously sunny, although the mornings have been a bit chilly (5°C on Tuesday morning). The trees haven’t got all their leaves yet and the rape fields are glowing resplendently. Every morning and every afternoon I have thought to myself “surely commuting doesn’t get much better than this!”
