    Having gone through the "Must get there as fast as possible" era of my life I now drive at the speed limit. I find I arrive no sooner or later than I did before and save a bunch of petrol / cash in with the deal.

    It is amusing when cycling out and about and in town that even a lowly bicycle can keep up with the most testosterone induced, heavy right-footed alpha male in his go-faster-stripped Corsa.

    Prick. Cyclists are the cholesterol in the blood stream that is the British highways (Bants) Maybs if you bought a decent car, like a Subaru or a decent Mitsubishi, you'd get there quicker

    Ha! How would a Subaru or Mitsubishi be able to navigate a traffic jam any faster than the car I have at present?

    Of course I would be more than happy to give up my daily commute by bike and make your roads even more congested.

    Depends where you live... I live in the Snowdonia region (Wales), so the only traffic jams I see are caused by the local farmer herding sheep down the road...

    Personally I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. They are more trouble than they are worth.
