Now is the time to get your bicycle out

The roads are quieter, with fewer cars about. You cannot cycle less than a meter from another person with any ease. They are good exercise and get you there faster than walking. You can "park" almost anywhere.

Now, I am not talking about long runs in the country, or belting around muddy hill trails.

I'm talking about getting into town, to the Supermarket, down to the park. There must be a multitude of places within 5 miles of you and, as you get fitter, you can make it 8, miles each way. That's about half an hour's pedalling.

I haven't got a Bike and I doubt that I could manage 10 yards on one, Its hard enough just making it to the car these days.

I gave up cycling some years ago, mainly because of the volume of traffic and no longer possess a bike but, I walk miles every day with the dog and rarely meet anyone on the quiet lanes and paths. Fortunately, this is not a picturesque tourist spot, so we shouldn't get swamped by the dickheads, like parts of Wales.
