I cycle to work because it’s easy

By | 5 February, 2015

Here in Dublin, when you tell someone that you commute to work by bike, they make an assumption that you are a speed daemon dressed head-to-toe in Lycra. They associate cycling with sport or recreation, and imagine that people on bikes need to be athletic and brave/foolish.

The thing is, I’m not athletic, and I’m not sporty. I don’t cycle to work because I want to get fit. I cycle to work because it’s… easy!
