Go with your instincts when cycling in this hellish traffic. If your thoughts are telling you "don't do it". Listen up.
I started out for my ride home, the winds were 20 mph, the flags were stiff, my office mate said "don't cycle home, take the boat" he adviced.
But I was really looking forward to the long ride home, the challenge of cycling without getting hurt or killed, The experience of facing those car driving jerks. I was gun-ho for the cycle home.
I had my light bike, my Specialized, I was pumped.
I headed South and then doubt filled mind, "maybe I shouldn't, maybe not".
And then a wind gust swept me up and wobbled my bike and I thought ". What would happen if I got a gust of wind in Weymouth? I would be killed.
I took the boat.
Man vs. nature, nature always wins.
