Given that it is the time of year when people make life changing decisions (Ok I am a wee bit late with this one, most people have abandoned their New Year resolutions by now). I thought I would ask the question Why did you start cycle commuting? I first started seriously cycle commuting when I first went to Uni as a mature student and had sold my car to help pay my way. I had occasionally cycle to work before that but not on a regular basis and so at that time thought that when I graduated I would get another car. When I did graduate four years later I no longer wanted a car, and I haven't owned a car almost 14 years.
