The Bike Regime Begins

Well, over the weekend I bought my first London bike. A bit scary I know, but I've discovered that the idea of riding a bike in London is generally a lot more frightening than the act itself. At least that's what I'm telling myself. :o)

I'm working up for a bike trip to Brighton, which is a good 50 miles from where I live in London. Should be a good way to prepare myself for a week-long bike journey around Belgium that is planned for mid-July.

So far I've enjoyed seeing new parts of London that I never even knew existed (it can get surprisingly spacious inside the M25 -- well along the outskirts at least). It's also amazing to me experiencing the otherwise familiar city on a whole new scale.

For the record, I thought I should try to keep track of my trips so that I could inspire myself to work harder. So here's a taste for those of you with GoogleMap minds to envision.
