The Commute to Stockley Park

Here's the GPS trace from the ride, you can even see me stopping at the red lights.....

The amazing thing to me is how cycle is the fastest route, even over such a distance, with train lines that run, if anything, even straighter. 1 hour 40 minutes for the 40 Kilometres, door to door.

How long would it take by tube? Here's TfL Journey Planner of the trip:

Now that has no allowance for waiting for trains and buses. I can cut that down by maybe 15 minutes with the cycle assist, but even that clocks in at about 1Hour 45.

Who would have thought it, eh?


  1. Good on you, it's always an eyeopener to non cyclists. Keep it up where you can. Thumbs up.

  2. Call me a dullard, but what's the travel time?

  3. The amount of time it takes you to get from A to B

    Pleased to see you raced the public transport system and won! There are some parts of London that are hurrendously complicated to get to and that is when the bike wins. I also raced the London Underground along 3 routes and won by 33% less time!
