    This is a good point - I do wonder how many bikes are used just once or twice and never again... (unless Girton/Homerton...)
    So if you're at Homerton you'd need a bike? I'm not a confident rider >,<

    I used to cycle from Girton to Homerton with my viola to play in a string quartet.

    Even if you're not at Girton or Homerton, a bike is a good thing. Grange Road is very long if you're walking, for instance.

    My son was at Trinity and reckoned that everywhere was 10 minutes away by bike. If it was in the middle of town, the going was slow. If going a bit further out, e.g. the boathouse, it was further but faster.

    Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Having a bike turns my journey from a 20 minute walk to a 5 minute cycle.

    I think I'd just have to walk tbh, so scared of riding unless it's in an open park, definitely not around people or cars >.< hopefully lectures won't be that far

    I'm a confident walker. I've been walking since I was a little kid.

    After watching the Olympics I was inspired to attempt racewalking, mainly because I felt it would be a good conversation starter and because I'm really rather unfit.

    Turns out that **** is dispiritingly painful. My calves were utterly shredded. Is this what becoming fit is meant be like?

    This is why I'm taking up college sports - less competitive than uni wide sports so probably less of a shock to lazy people like me :P
    On a sidenote, I love the olympics! It is the one time every four years that you'll find me remotely interested in any sort of sport

    I wanted to find out long it would take to walk from college to the lecture halls, and google maps legitimately suggests to punt it.

    Claim; The Olympics is fake.
    Proof:
    You heard it here first.
    They include stuff like walking but can't include stuff like cricket.
    Yes, Cricket is a proper sport, tons of countries play it. Hence, Olympics is fake. Q.E.D

    Cricket is a 'trivial' sport, like this \emptyset.
    Racewalking is a 'proper' sport, \subsetneq.
