The cycling is working well. It's about three times faster than walking, cutting my journey from just over 30 minutes to about ten. Even with getting changed at work I'm still halving my trip there and back. Crucially, it lets me pick up and drop off the Captain and still make it to work in good time.
I have a locker - in which I keep shoes, a pair of work trousers, some shirts for the week and some toiletries.
The journey to work is mostly down hill so quite fast and exciting. Coming home is a bit more of a slog up Queensferry Road and Lothian Road.
The new bike is performing well overall, but I think needs to go back to the shop this weekend to have it's front gears adjusted.
