each way? depends on what shape you are in. for most people it will be too much
yep each way. I reckon an hour each way, which is about the same time on train, door to door etc. I used to do a lot of miles (proly around 80-100) per week 16/17 years ago on mtb's. Was a long time ago though.
My main concern is the traffic down here, too many bloody foreigners with no license/insurance an all round inconsiderate bastards - that, the winter weather and traffic lights!
I am trying to get our company to do the government cycle to work scheme so I can get a free bike. I think it's a fair whack what you can get them to give you to buy a new bike. The company claim it back as tax relief and usually the bike becomes yours after a year or so.
Loads of people used to smash 8-10 miles of hills on the way to work where I used to work…I'd say its doable
if your in good shape why not.
ps stan - you wont get a free bike, just about 41% off list price. i did it to get that bianchi. my work just takes out about £30 per month for a year
