I've moved into my new house on Osler Rd. This means that I don't have my 5mi ride to and from work any more. My daily commute ride is a much easier mile or so, but I'm still getting my heavy cycling workout, never fear. The ride from Headington (where I live & work) to the city centre (where BNC is) is about 3 miles but is a very steep hill. This means I can literally almost make it from Headington to town without pedaling and that I am huffing and puffing and sweating my way along in first gear on the way back. I'm going to take my GPS the next time I go to get an exact measure of distance and elevation change. Plus I'll look sweet wearing the receiver on my helmet.
