Cycling should be a case of speeding from point A to point B, but sometimes it can be challenging.
Here’s a quick rattle through 10 of the worst things about being a cyclist.
Drivers acting like you don’t exist
The turbo training sessions during the winter
Getting caught in the rain
Having to explain why bikes are so expensive
Lycra: the first encounter
Red traffic lights
Cycling anywhere in winter
Being asked ‘Do you ride the Tour de France?’
Thinking you’re at the top of the hill, then discovering you aren’t
Not bringing enough clothes
Forgetting you’re clipped in until it’s too late
