Where is the adventure in that? Plus it is not very green. I gave up on my car more than 12 months ago and have been cycling the 8 miles to work in Henley-on-Thames (and back) every day since, so I have been in training to cycle (albeit inadvertedly) for over 12 months. I love cycling. It is the most liberating and envigorating of experiences. I need reasons not to cycle to Puglia.
