I have opted to use my old trusted bike when I had to get in to the office for a day here in September. We still feel it is best to avoid lengthy travel on public transit if it can be avoided. I have 14 kilometres from home to the office and I can do that as fast as taking the train and walking to the office even with counting in the showering time. You got to be clean and presentable right. Also you get your exercise for the day as well so much better option.
