I've just accepted a new job and plan to sell the car and cycle commute instead. It's a 20-mile round trip through the Leeds hinterland, so nothing too arduous if a little busy traffic-wise.
I've only ever ridden for leisure before so I'm looking for advice - kit tips, lights and any hard-earned knowledge.
My plan is to buy a trailer to take the baby to the childminder. That's only half a mile away so I'll ditch it and then ride to work. I'll be riding my Spesh Allez.
It's been a dream of mine to be able to do this. Now it's happening the practicalities are starting to get a bit scary... Just thinking of that first snowy, minus 5 morning.
Any helpful advice would be a great help.
