does anyone cycle around London at night when its quieter?
full disclosure, since getting my bike a few months ago, I've found it difficult to fit in rides during the week - I get home from work quite late, and I don't think I'll ever enjoy cycling through London during peak traffic times as a leisure/fitness thing. I'm still quite a nervous cyclist in busy traffic after the series of accidents I had in 2012 and I don't think anything will really change that. So basically, I've just been getting the overground up to Hoxton and doing laps of Victoria park on the weekends with the occasional ride out further into south-east London when I've got people to cycle with (feel safer for some reason?).
Anyway, I want to cycle more, and take it more seriously - does anyone ride at night when its quieter? Experiences doing so? Is it exactly the same?
