1 morning, 3 modes of transport

Earlier this week I’ve used my race bike to get to work. On the way the weather turned really bad, so I arrived soaking wet (one colleague asked if there was a swimmer in the house).

Next step was taking the metro. Because of the morning rush every compartment of every metro was overcrowded. Time for some high quality belly to belly time!

The third transport mode was a little truck. In this motorized vehicle I was on my own, sat dry, had the radio on, but had to wait at every traffic light.

It took me over 45 minutes to travel 19 km on bike and over 75 minutes to cover approximately 8 km by metro and truck.

Conclusion: At the end of the day I do prefer my race bike, even in wet conditions…

Cost of climate change

The American bank Citi calculated that climate change will cost somewhere between $ 20 000 000 000 000 and $ 72 000 000 000 000 over the next 45 years. That is if we do nothing to prevent climate change. Tackling the problem, doesn’t cost anything according to the bank. On the contrary, it can fetch money. If even a financial institution comes to this conclusion… Why are we doing so little on a day to day bases?
