Usually I ride my motorcycle in pretty much all weathers. Come rain, sleet or shine I’m out there. Up until now, the only thing that’s stopped me is seriously icy roads in the winter. I have to confess, however, that the recent heatwave has left me going to and from work by tube. After a couple of days when I arrived home literally soaked in sweat and then had to put an extremely smelly and still damp helmet and gloves on again the next day, I decided that it’s just not worth it. The tube may be fairly unpleasant at the moment but it’s much nicer than sitting in traffic on top of a hot engine in jacket, gloves and helmet. So, I admit it. I’ve wimped out.
