We have been in London for almost 2 years now (another 2 weeks and it will be 2 years!).
The first gadget we bought in London was our bicycles. After all these times and all the cycling trips we did, I’m so sad to say that I still do not have enough confidence to cycle on the road. I always feels very bad when the fear of being hit by a vehicle kicks in while I’m cycling. Worse still when Dav had to push his bicycle with me just to accompany me.
So I’ve decided to do something about it when I saw a poster in the tube station. TFL’s website actually has a sections on cycling and cycle training!! Not only this is great, it’s also FREE (at least for my council). Here’s when I feel really happy about paying 40% tax…. LoL
Anyway, I signed up online last month, few weeks later I received a form requesting for my personal details. Then last week, I received a package which contains 2 booklets on cycling safety. I was informed I should go through these materials before I start my lessons.
Today, I received a call from my future cycling teacher, James. We arranged to meet early next month to start my lessons and we even blocked a second date for the next lesson.
