    Compared to my winter commute that was 20 to 30 minutes for 4.5km, I’m now between 15 to 17 minutes.

    Reminded me of the time I took a skateboard to work. That was 21km from home so I can’t remember how I got there if I didn’t take the car. It took me three hours to return home by skateboard.
