London, Food and Travel with an Alternative Twist!

How Long will it take to Travel Across Various English Cities? *

Just how long will it take to travel across the UK’s busiest cities using a bicycle as opposed to getting behind the wheel or using public transport? Family-run cycling store Leisure Lakes Bikes aims to find out…

 

London

London has a huge population of over 7,074,265 people making getting places a little tough when it seems like that entire city is getting in the way so how long would it take to get from Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel to King’s Cross Station. It would take 33 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route when driving via the A501 and if you pick the train it would take 29 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route by on the Hammersmith & City underground from Whitechapel. If you fancy getting those steps up then tt would take 1 hour and 21 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route by walking the same route you’d drive but it would only take 27 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route when cycling!

Birmingham

Birmingham has a smaller population of 1,020,589 but does that means there are less people on the road so driving is the best option to get from Cadbury World to Birmingham New Street Station? It would take 17 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route when driving but would take 23 to cycle the same route. To take the train would take 26 mins, but if you’re looking to walk it, it’s an hour and 26 minutes!

Fastest form of transport: Driving

Leeds

Leeds has a fairly tiny population compared to those in London and Birmingham having only 726,939 people, but again, does having less people on the road make driving quicker and easy. If you’re heading from Kirkstall Abbey to Leeds Station a typical journey by car would take 18 minutes by taking the quickest route when driving and just a few minutes more to cycle. It would take 28 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route by public transport but, as usual the longest route is by walking at an 1 hour and 3 minutes.

Fastest form of transport: Driving

Liverpool

If you’re looking for the fastest route between Aintree Racecourse to Liverpool Lime Street Station, it won’t be walking as it’s over an hour away, but jumping on the train would only take you 27 minutes. If you wasn’t in a rush and didn’t have your posh frock on you could cycle it in just under 30 minutes, but if you’re looking to get there pronto, it will only take you 21 minutes by car.

Fastest form of transport: Driving

Manchester

If yo’ve been to a match or gig at Old Trafford football stadium, it’s likely you’re going to want to head back to Manchester Piccadilly Station which would only take you 13 minutes to complete the journey by taking the quickest route when driving, but 22 minutes if you wanted to cycle a similar route. It would take 24 minutes by public transport and a staggering 1 hour and 2 minutes to walk it!

Fastest form of transport: Driving

Bristol

If you’ve been out for a day of golf at Woodspring Golf & Country Club and need to get back home via Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station, you’re best to drive it as it’s only 18 minutes away, but if you chose to walk it, you need to add an hour onto that! Public transport and cycling are only a mere minute apart so it might be worth taking your bike if you don’t like buses or trains!
