Two Wheels beat Four in Edinburgh

TWO wheels beat four during the latest “commuter challenge” to find the quickest way to travel into Edinburgh city centre.
The annual time trial to see which is the fastest way to get to work saw bicycles and motorbikes take the honours in four races from the edge of town to Frederick Street.
Motorbikes came out on top in the journeys from Ocean Terminal and the Ingliston Park and Ride. But the cyclists, who were described by event organisers as typical commuters rather than competitive racers, were fastest on the trips from Newcraighall Station and Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

    Hi, I sell motorcycles for a living.
    I start my week on a Tuesday and bicycle from Howden, Livingston to Peffermill Road, Edinburgh. It takes me typically 1 hour.
    The rest of the week I commute on a motorcycle that takes 35-45 minutes.
    By car 45 -60 minutes.
    Unfortunately bicycling home on a Saturday night at the end of my week if the wind is in my face my time travelling home varies between 70-90 minutes.
    Thought you might be interested.
    David (getting on aged 42)
