is not as bad as I thought it was going to be, the roads are reasonably quite and listening to the radio for 40 minutes with a cup of coffee next to me is quite relaxing!. So what is the problem?......

Fcuking Potholes!, that is the cnuting problem!. I now have a routine that is triggered by landmarks on the side of the road that tell me when to move over to the centre of the road, straddle the cats eyes, drive close to the verge, take this right turn as wide as possible etc etc.

Bollox to the NHS, HMS Poxy Carrier Crap and stick Brexit up your arse.

Put the tax's up by 0.1% and sort the funking roads out.

I say no more.:angry::angry::angry:

29 miles isn't long by many people's standards. Some people commute over a hundred miles each way.

(says the man who has never ridden more than 9 miles to a job).

My commute is 55kms each way on some of the best roads in the region :grin: It`s glorious in the summer. No traffic to speak of and no coppers. The occasional elk, but that`s part of the charm. I`m blessed because my commute is the highlight of my working day, at least in the summer :thumbup:

I get out of bed in the morning and walk across the yard to feed the pigs..... that’s what I call a commute!

And then I commute back to the house for breakfast (nice bit of bacon and some eggs) :blush:

Try commuting on the M25, you don't have to worry about potholes, you only ever go over them in 1st gear:sad:

Potholes, don't get me started on potholes, the roads round my why look like a war zone! You either swerve and run the risk of a head on collision, or risk your suspension / wheels /tyres.
Main reason I don't go out on my bike when it's dark or wet, that puddle could be a six inch deep hole!
