Topic - bicycle commute Sheffield to Glossop

andic - on 24 Feb 2014
I am not a keen cyclist, but I do a bit of mtn biking and am fairly fit at the moment.

My commute costs me about 40 quid a week and robs me of the time I need to exercise and spend with my OH (rule of 2 out of 3)

I am toying with the idea of cycling to or from work alternating with driving to cut fuel costs and work in a bit of free exercise.

The route would be out of Sheffield thru broom hill, A57 and over the snake pass 24-25mi. I'd do it one way and leave car/bike at work.

Is this sustainable for a punter like me (I'd get a decent bike)or a bit heroic. I'd train up to it a bit and have a couple of dry runs, but would like to get soundings if this is a silly idea and will probably take me 5hrs and i'll certainly bin it after the first go?
