I didn’t forget the significance of today and the anniversary of what happened in New York. I just didn’t think there was a link between that and cycling. But then I recalled there was a chain of events. What happened in New York lead to what happened in London in July 2005 and the immediate consequence for a lot of commuters in London at that time was to go out an buy a bicycle. Sales in bikes shot up overnight. I was anxious about travelling by Tube but I did it any way. It was at this time I began considering whether I could cycle again.
