William’s cycle-commuting story in the Lancaster Guardian

william thompson photoThis week’s commuter is William, whose job is near Blackburn.  His occasional solution?  Catch the train to Preston, then cycle the remaining 13 miles.  He quickly developed pot-hole antennae for the A675 but has now encountered a new challenge: Transpennine’s new bikes on trains policy, which requires 24 hours’ notice.  The solution to that?  Pedal faster to ensure he never misses his train.

Nonetheless, he loves his cycle commute.

You can read William’s account in this week’s Lancaster Guardian or view a scan of it here.
