I couldn't agree more! Talk about mindless boredom on the road in a car! I now make excuses to go run errands now that the bike weather has comeBeen out of a few times, sadly most of it commuting to various events. Although commuting on a bike > a car any day.
Whereabouts in London are you? I actually picked my bike up at Hully Gully in June this yearWell compared to last year where in March we had a warm spell that brought 25+ C weather, yes its late! Seems like an eternity but I remember back when I was younger I had a couple birthdays with snow and thats not til may. I'll consider us fortunate for what we have right now.
