Since I began cycling to work, I’ve learned a few things.

1. On really hot days, no matter what I do, I will have to change when I reach the office, because I just end up so sweaty. This is inevitable.

2. All that time I spent worrying about what footwear I could cycle in? Time wasted. It transpires that I can cycle in a very wide range of footwear (and the black suede wedges I’m wearing in these photographs are, surprisingly, brilliant for pedaling).

3. Shorts are good! I love skirts, but gosh - a pair of tailored shorts are so easy. No risk of knicker flashing, but every bit as cool as a skirt in hot weather.

4. My hair will end up sweaty. I can minimise damage with a (pure silk) headscarf - it definitely helps prevent frizz, and my hair is less sweat-soaked than if I go without - but my hair WILL end up damp. I’m no longer worried about it.

5. My Bobbin Bicycles New York Cycle Crate is an absolute godsend. Yes, it adds weight and width; but it gives me so much flexibility. I love it.

6. My Sawako Furuno helmet was a good investment. I feel super cool, and I’m safe - what more could I possibly want from safety gear?

7. It turns out, I can stand up and pedal fast on hills! And it feels great.

8. I am still completely unable to ride with no hands, and remain incredibly impressed by cyclists who can accomplish this feat. I applaud you.

Today, I needed an outfit to cycle in, which would also look sharp for conducting interviews. I’m wearing tailored wool shorts from Massimo Dutti, a Paul Costelloe blaze, a very old hgh-necked red top (which left my neck really sticky - nice!) and suede wedge sandals. (I won’t cycle in my stilettos - I’m brave, but that would just be stupid). What’s the verdict - cycle chic?
