    No having to drive!

  2. Raymond says:

    Being outside – because it’s fun to explore (and so much more fun than walking or jogging)!

  3. Murray says:

    So I can drink more beer and eat more chocolate.

  4. Murray says:

    I certainly don’t do it to save time.
    I can actually walk and catch the train to work in about half the time it takes me to ride.

    Hi Murray
    In terms of travel times cycling is typically comparable to other forms of transport for distances of up to 5km.
    Are you including the time you spend waiting at the station, as you need to calculate your travel time door-to-door to an accurate comparison.
    Also, you save time by exercising during your commute.
    To achieve the same exercise level by going to a gym, walking, swimming etc would be more time out of your day.
