    Obviously I come on my own, billy no mates, but for convenience and efficiency it's not as clear cut as you think.
    How long does it take you?

    If I were to do that I'd have to have a shower after and therefore, it is not convenient.

    Cycling from where I live to Forest might be quite fun, but I suspect it’d not really be doable.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Going hell for leather if it's a night match, from leaving the office to being sat in my seat in the Peter Taylor stand, a shade under an hour.

    Cycling more sedately so I don't drown my fellow supporters with the sweat on my brow and smell like a hippies crotch, 70 minutes or so.

    Lets not forget there's ongoing roadworks on the A52 and once you hit Priory roundabout at Beeston it's a relentless slog of stop start traffic, the rest of the way through Nottingham, before parking the car and walking to the WFCG.

    That's on my pub bike, one I don't mind losing if it were nicked, rather than one of my road bikes, ridden in normal clothes.

    It used to take the best part of an hour to get from my front door to my seat when I lived in Beeston many moons ago and I used to drive!

    What’s a ‘pub bike’?

    Carbon frame Trek worth £10k... you couldn’t do it on a Raleigh Strika...

    Had one if those. Or my brother did, and I got it as a hand-me-down with a buckled wheel.

    I was going to fill the survey in but my dog ate it / I left it on the bus / my gran died (for the third time this year). Honest.
