Found this video of an Oxford cyclist's intrepid commute last week.

Film is a bit speeded up, but nevertheless he/she appears to be flying - couple of nasty wobbles, but doesn't deter them from giving the camera a wipe every now and again. 

Commute is along the Banbury Road, finishing on St Giles with St John's College to the left and the Ashmolean Museum to the right.


Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Of course the fun really starts when the snow freezes and those nasty ruts become like tram tracks. You get into a rut and it's difficult to get out without falling-off!
