    I do lots of cycling throughout the year.

    It's just so easy hobby. I ride to work daily during summer time. Then sometimes I ride long cycling trips, like yesterday I got 80km. During the winter time I ride with my indoor cycle every morning.

    Possibly 'enjoy' isn't the right word,

    certainly not at the beginning! But over the last month I've started cycling into work every day - it's just over 8 miles away but it's over a 750 foot climb to get there. At first it half killed me, but now I've got it down to around 50 minutes there, and 25 minutes home...
