Bike beats both car and Metro

I WRITE in response to the article ‘Train triumphs over car in need for speed’ (News Guardian, October 20).

On the morning in question, I made a similar journey, kids school to office door, from the coast to Newcastle city centre in 33 minutes, beating both car and Metro, on a bicycle.

Quicker, cheaper and a lot more fun, sorry Phil and Sharon, better luck next time.
