Have you ever thought about all the different ways you could get to work, or to that next meeting? Does your brain start to melt when you begin to calculate the prep, cost and consequences of each option?

Well, this might help break it down.

Tune in live on Friday for our own commuter experiment as 10 intrepid commuters take on different modes of transport to get between Stride Treglown’s Bristol and Bath offices.

It’s pedal power vs electric, public vs private, ‘clean’ vs dirty and active vs passive.

Who will win the race? Who will arrive most ‘work-ready’? How will they cope with the surprise challenges they must complete en-route?

What will be the real cost of their journey?
