The University of the West of England in Bristol has conducted their own version of the ever-popular “commuter race”, with predictable results. Four commuters—a motorist, a bus rider, a runner, and a bicyclist—all started at the same location during rush hour, approximately 3.5 miles from the school. The motorist made the trip in 53 minutes, averaging 4.68 mph; the bus rider made it in 39 minutes, averaging 6.35 mph; the runner made it in 28 minutes, averaging 6.94 mph; and (drum roll please), the bicyclist made the trip in just 17 minutes, at an average speed of 12.39 mph.
