Cycling provides a brilliant antidote sickness and the costs associated with it. We recently discovered that 68% of people that use our National Cycle Network threw not a single sickie last year. Just by riding to work every day, we can improve our health to such an extent that we reduce the number of sick days we take to almost half.
Here's a question that's not often asked: what if train punctuality is a false measure? Perhaps commuter punctuality is what we should really care about? Instead of the number of trains getting to stations on time, perhaps we would get more useful information if we tracked the number of people being delivered to stations on time.
