That's not bad timing for cycling. Don't blame your hesitance though, I got knocked off my bike two years ago on a 60mph "A" road; ended up in hospital for a couple of days, and losing my driving license, because of a head injury, for what should have been 6 months but ended up being nearly 11 months I'm lucky though, don't remember anything about the accident itself, so no flashbacks and no fear of cycling from it.6.5 miles ish can do it in anything from 15-30 minutes traffic depending and also depending on which of the three possible routes I take, one being a nice scenic country route and the other two major A roads. I can also cycle it in 25-30 minutes (don't laugh I am not very young), but am too scared after being hit by a car and getting a bit mangled up on a notorious 50mph limit, 'B' winding country road about 7 years ago.
Hi Peter - I just sent you a DM.Mine isn't too bad. 4.8 mile drive, between 15 - 20 minutes on a typical day. My main issue is I can't drive (and I'm unlikely to since I've been left with a crippling fear of cars since my accident last year) so I'm completely dependent on lifts from family, or I have to pay through the nose for taxis that are never on time.
15 min walk and then onto the Overground. 1 hour door to door.
if it took any longer I'd rethink my willingness, given the truly unreasonable fares and complete lack of service whenever they feel like striking...
The teachers all live within 3 miles of the school. Most of the techs drive for an 30 minutes to an hour to get here.21-22 miles away (less as the crow flies) - 5 min drive to station, 2 trains and a 10 min walk. (I leave at 6.50 to get in for 8.15.)
So needless to say anyone claiming they live miles away when they are only a few miles down the road is like a red rag to a bull..........
I love working here. The people are (mostly) fabulous, the pupils are (mostly) charming, and the pay/perks are good.Worth it in what way?
That is really nice to hear. It is hard to think about leaving a great team and place, but the money is a factor.I love working here. The people are (mostly) fabulous, the pupils are (mostly) charming, and the pay/perks are good.
