Whilst that is true, I decided against it for several reasons. Firstly in England you are not really supposed to cycle on the pavement, which is why everyone takes their cycling proficiency test whilst in school...I failed mine twice
Secondly, for obvious reasons this is a summer time thing only. As eventually it will be dark in the afternoon BEFORE I leave work, the main time for doing this is only 6 months of the year...we have maybe a month and a half left, before I am restricted to sundays and mondays only.
By next year I hope to have permanent transport, so I dont need to worry about future summers
Finally...walking is better then cycling I think
I do actually still have a plantation in my own back garden which will be finished at the end of this year and moved permanently to the allotment...but here is an update on it
