Depends on how good a bike rider you are. Make it 40 minutes and a pushbike leaves any other transport for dead in terms of calories in/cargo moved. Did this yesterday when having to do a job and the admiral had the car. Add up the time working to make money
for the car, a place to store it, parking, tolls, speeding tickets, insurance
, prangs, time needed at the gym, and I reckon you are going a fair bit slower than that. Add in the time needed to cover extra taxes
to support the infrastructure and you may find the average speed of the population is even less.
