A few weeks ago I started commuting from St.Pancras International to Victoria. I asked advice from the sages in this forum and have pretty much settled on the best route for me. My absolute best time is 22 minutes on my Brompton, and that's on early morning clear roads with minimal traffic-light delays. A colleague at work has been bragging how he can do it in 12 minutes and I have held my tongue until this morning when he came in and said he'd done it in 10. I couldn't help myself but retort with the word 'Jackanory'. Even the TfL recommended route gives a time of 24 minutes. My apologies if your name's Bradley Wiggins but I really don't know how my colleague can not only shave a few minutes off my time but do the journey in well under half my best time. What do you think? FYI he rides a Dahon folder and the distance, whichever way you do it, is around 4-4.5 miles. I hate bullsh*t, can you tell?
