'sup Swellinfo. I'm in an interesting situation and was curious what team Swellinfo thinks. It's like this: I live about 35 miles one-way door to door from my house to my work. With traffic, my drive averages a low of 40min to a high of 1:20, depending on when I leave each place. Also, I drive a Subaru, so I'm burning about $7/day in gas round trip. Now then, there is a train that runs along the coast that I can take to work and back, and it's free because work will reimburse me for the tickets. It's two miles from my house to the train station, and the train drops me off 4 miles from work. I can take a bike on the train. Best case, giving myself a few minutes on either end for unexpected red lights, my trip would be 1:30 each way. The reason why this isn't an obvious answer for me is that I work 4 miles from a surf spot. It's an easy 15 minute drive to get in a lunchtime surf session. If I bike, though, I'm not sure a surfboard is going to work, I'll have longer to get to the surf meaning much less water time, and I'll be limited to fins and bodysurfing rather than board surfing. So to summarize: Drive: + Usually shorter commute + Lunchtime surfs - Extremely aggravating stop and go traffic, especially driving home - $35/week in gas, plus wear and tear on the car Bike: + Workout takes care of itself with 12-20 miles of biking everyday, even if I don't bodysurf + Saving money and tear on the car + The hour I'm on the train I can read or do something else productive - Potentially not enough time to surf at lunch - Even if there's time, bodysurfing instead of board surfing - By this time of year, not enough time to surf during the week after work WWJD? What would YOU do?
