From my door in Brooklyn to my office building it is 22-23 minutes by bike.

By subway, including walk to subway, I am looking at close to 50 minutes.

Car service through the Battery Tunnel, 30-35 minutes.

Today was even better, there was a delay on the train and most of my co-workers came in 30 minutes late. I could not stand being cooped up in the train for that long with that many people.

Only three minutes more for the train?

A win for mass transit AND bicycles if you ask me.

A. (Surprised by that. Dept of Trans must have made sure there were no delays. To lose by a windfall would be bad PR. Maybe they should race everyday.)
