    Before I started bike commuting, it was The Underground.

    Bus. Cycling is so much better. No longer have to mingle with the drug addicts and alcoholics and listen to Chantelle telling Courtney her life story.

    Yep, jet pack for me too.

    Seriously, I've never driven, so over the years its been a mix of bicycle, bus, legs, taxi, tuk-tuk, cycle rickshaw... depending on the distance, the weather, how I feel, and where I am (I've worked in Asia, as you might guess).

    Currently I work from home, and when I get out of bed I'm closer to my desk than to my bike. And I really like the fact that cycling for me now is pure pleasure and nothing else.
