I currently cycle to the train station, get on the train with my bike and get off it 20 miles later and ride to work. the current set up sees me riding about 6 miles a day.
I could however cycle the whole thing as i have done once in the past, but...this would mean a daily cycle of around 50 miles give or take. there isnt really a financial reason for doing it other than I think I would be awesome on our sat morning club rides after about 3 months of doing this, so say around may ish I could be a beast on a bike
If I ride there are 3 routes to choose from. ( these are routes from milton keynes to bedford just to put into context.
Route A. The A422. An undulating single carriageway A road of about 12 miles in length
Route B. The A421 A dual carriageway approx 11 miles long, flat and fast.
Route C. The old A421. A flat single carriageway fairly flat approx 11 miles long.
The extra mileage is made up from getting to said roads through milton keynes and bedford.
My concerns are, getting squashed on either the 422 or the dual (high probability I reckon), wearing myself out, having to leave at 6 instead of half 6 although I leave work at half 4 mon-thurs and 1.15 fridays.
Benefits, health and general awesomeness i guess
Anyone else do this sort of commute? how do you get on? is it worth it? should i bother? opinions in general please.
