My Week on 2 Wheels

Actually it's been 2 weeks, but we'll gloss nicely over that, and one way or another it's been an eventful couple of weeks both on and off my bike.

After some trauma, the tenancy agreement for our flat was finally signed off on Valentines day. A mere 2 working days before the deadline and I think I can single handedly thank cycling for keeping some of sanity- providing me with an all important decompression zone and getting me out of the building at zero cost and lots of benefit to my health and fitness.

I reviewed 2 different sports bras on the blog earlier this week 2- a compression bra and a more traditional fit sports bra. If you fancy a bit of a look at how they worked out for me, you can read about it HERE

The other development is pretty exciting for me- bear in mind that I started cycling this time last year after buying a second hand hybrid on eBay, not having gotten on a bike since my age was still in single figures. Fast forward 12 months, and I've exchanged my trial by 18kg haul up the stairs hybrid for my not always shiny single-speed 9.5kg dream whose only issue is with inclines.

I purchased my new bike via at work, which is pretty handy and tax efficient, and recently they started their hunt for 12 Super Commuters representing 12 regions of the UK as cyclists keen to promote the several zillion benefits of cycling your commute. This was my entry:

I'm going to be representing the South East as a Super Commuter in London! I can't tell you how exciting it is to have a platform for encouraging cycling, having found so much joy in it and it looks as though there's going to be some pretty awesome challenges on the go. I'm hoping that I'll be able to document some of my Super Commuter antics via MWO2W and I have some pretty awesome new kit coming to me along with this opportunity.

And so concludes My (2) Weeks on 2 Wheels, and an exciting fortnight it's been 2. I'm now settled on the sofa with a slight less exciting mound of emails to plough through after a weekend away at my parents and before my work week madness kicks back in again.
