Not my normal roads for commuting, so hard to say. I crossed one normally very busy main road - certainly not eerily quiet, maybe less busy than I expected, but I wouldn't normally be there at that time of day.
In south London it feels like a similar volume of traffic, but with more of a weekend driver vibe. I assume that people that usually use public transport are driving instead. Anecdote not data, but there are more drivers that seem unused to mixing with cyclists.I did my usual commute this morning. I was expecting the roads to be quieter. But nope, just the normal mental monday morning moton traffic.
A bit quieter, although someone had crashed a truck near the rail bridge/roundabout at Bredbury this am (on your route)
My ex-boss says that this is one of two things he learnt off me - that if you are working from home, still commute. It book-ends the working day, and gives you the exercise and wake-up that you need.I had today booked off work anyway but haven't heard anything from work yet so assume I am meant to be at the office tomorrow. I do know that I will need to be on the bike otherwise I will go insane.
What is everyone's plan for cycling to work from home to home then? Do two rides of similar distance to normal or one ride about double the distance? Stick to your normal route or be more adventurous?
I am not sure if I will be able to find the motivation for doing two rides per day (the main motivation for riding to/from work despite the weather and terrible traffic
LOL! A couple of months ago an artic truck driver had approached the 'low' bridge and decided he wouldn't fit so attempted a U-turn across the grass reservation of the roundabout approach. Sunk up to the axles and left the trailer blocking the road, obviously this happened in the peak of the morning rush hour and resulted in gridlock chaos for miles around as the queues formed. Luckily I was cycling home from my nightshift and just breezed through the resulting mayhemalthough someone had crashed a truck near the rail bridge/roundabout at Bredbury this am (on your route)
