    Default I sometimes think I'm nuts

    As part of my commute I have to use a foot tunnel under the river Thames. There are around a hundred steps up and down.

    I've now taken to shouldering the bike as quick as I can, running up the stairs and trying to jump on without stopping. All in the name of practising for 'cross.

    I've never ridden a cross bike in my life!

    Sounds like a great idea. Where is the tunnel? On my one trip to London I used the Millennium Bridge.

    Greenwich.

    Looks like we are about to lose it for a coup[le of year while they renovate it for the olympics. That'll add about 12 miles a day to my commuting.

    I still have no idea where I'm going to ride cross. There is a course at the velodrome and they hold races there throughout the season. I'd like something I don't have to drive to though.

    And of course I'm gonna need a bike.

    You gotta make your own fun.

    I still have yet to enter a cross race but I do have a section of my evening commute where I dismount and run suitcase style for about 15 yards, in the name of leapfrogging a hairy left turn to the next one up, enabling me to ride relatively traffic free for a short while.
