So in the name of being more active I have decided to start cycling to and from work. So far a can report it has been a largely positive experience. The benefits are for me one less car on the road, one less parking space used in Milford, less emissions, a bit of exercise, fresh(ish) air, a subtle sense of achievement, cost savings on petrol etc. All of which outweigh the disadvantages of arriving at work a little hot and clammy, scary encounters with motorists who come too close, more time and more organisation required, logistics of bringing cloths to work. All of which I am getting used to. I definitely enjoy riding home from work, it breaks up work from home in a nice way. You should give it a try!
