As I commute on the same bike as I ride on the weekend - I sometimes get very tempted to ride straight past work, especially on a nice day.

NOT done it yet though Laughing

Nope, having your own company puts a different slant on it. Not going to work means not getting paid so riding fits strictly around working.
That means at the moment i've not been on the bike other than commuting for nearly 3 weeks and its given me a real itch to get out tonight.

I've done it once and spent the whole day worrying that I'd fall off and break something. It's a bit difficult to claim a broken arm/leg on the day you were supposedly off with the shits... Laughing

Working for yourself has its benefits Very Happy

However, my wife is joint director and sits about 2 metres away from me, so getting out unnoticed is sometimes rather tricky ...
