There are a number of reported barriers to active travel such as lack of shower facilities, lack of safe cycle routes and perceived low levels of fitness. A common reason for driving to work by car is the perception that it saves time. But is this really the case?

In part 1, we compare a hybrid bike against a car over a 10 mile commute from Mow Cop Castle to Staffordshire University.
Watch part 2 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_QHj...

The rider has been cycling 1-3 days each week for approximately 6 months (not a super fit cyclist at all). The bike is a road bike with a pannier rack (not a carbon fibre racer). The car is a 2.2 Diesel engine driven as fast as the speed limit (and traffic) will allow.
