Cycle 2 Work

So - here it is - my new commute from Kings Cross Station to Thomsons offices (near Victoria). Time on the tube was around 30 minutes and was hot. I take about the same time in the morning (don't want to get hot and sweaty) but in the evenings I storm through London in under 20 mins - and get exercise for free.

The Cycle to work scheme means I acquired a folding bike and all relevant accessories in time for the Olympics - but I pay for it before tax spread over the year. Makes it quite compelling. I need to use it for around 110 days to earn the cost of the bike back in saved Tube fares.
