I travelled around 60 (or thereabouts) miles this morning, how about you?
2 miles walking, 6 miles on a train.
work to home. Bus took ages coming though
halcyon days, since then it's rarely been less than a mile.
or get the bus
unless you live in London, I honestly find the idea of cycling in London terrifying.
you don't want to leave it too long to get back on your bike, the longer you leave it, the more nervous you'll be (if you were me, that is)
thanks for letting me keep my bike at your house <3 xxxxxxx
Can cut that down to about 25 if I hop over the wall in the yard, rather than walking down the street....
This week: 99.36 miles (2 hours by train).
All on the tube, bar the 50-ish metre walk to the station.
on me bike
50 minutes, door to desk
I think I win the thread.
Driving a rubbish little Polo.
I am going to start cycling it one day a week again in the summer though, that was immensely satisfying.
SteveD's 99 mile commute probably wins the thread although that wasn't today so I guess that dubious accolade goes to me.
You have travelled the furthest distance by car (so far) so you can have a runner up prize for that.
approx. 18 minutes walk
Takes 46 minutes so always get in 1 minute late at 08:01am
Still in bed.
mostly by train and tube.
sat on a train
living the dream
Cannot wait to reduce commute to 30 mins (train)... or 10 mins (car).
for it to take 1.5 hours to go 51.8 miles? Bus? Tractor?
from Hove to Beckenham....avoiding A23/Croydon. If I went via croydon it'd be 2 hours plus.
On the train and tram it takes 1hr 45 door to door (more if the trains a re being shit, which they often are)
Takes just under an hour to walk.
burns 364 calories and saves 1.15kg of Co2 compared to a car, 0.41kg compared to the tube, and 0.83kg compared to a bus.
takes about an hour door-to-door (walking & tube).
Actually thought it was going to be a lot bigger distance. Disappointing.
I suppose I could run to and from work.
Usually takes about 90-100 minutes door to door.
Although this morning my train tickets were inexplicably cancelled before I even picked them up, so had to change trains which adds another 20 minutes or so.
where are you travelling to-from?
Three days a week usually, but quite often I try and stay over for a night if I can.
it's between £44-72 a week, depending on time of day I travel.
It may seem odd, but it was one of those situations where I had somewhere to live and other commitments in Sheffield, then was offered a job I couldn't refuse in Birmingham. And the job was only fixed for a year anyway, so it's not too bad. A guy who works in the same office also lives in Sheffield, but he does a full 5 days a week!
3 miles each way. I walk it.
quickest I've ever done it: 25 minutes
50 minutes door to desk. But only because I stopped for coffee on the way.
takes about 20 minutes walking.
Twenty minute walk to station, 40 minute train and fifteen minutes on the bus, because by that time I'm more than too annoyed to traipse up hill to the uni. Committed to a flat with my GF in Sheff before the position became available and I can't leave her in the lurch cos it's only 1 bed.
Not ideal, but I'm doing a great internship, all my mates live in Leeds, I get paid and I've only got til the end of May left, and then I'm doing interrail incorporating Euro 2012, so eat that.
but i took the long route on the school bus. So about a 40 minute bus ride in the mornings.
takes about 10 minutes on the bike.
rally to work via country roads. love it.
