In the second annual UWE Bristol Travel Challenge, cycles were narrowly pipped to the finishing line by the motorcycle as the quickest way to commute to Frenchay Campus.
A group of nine staff and students from UWE Bristol took part in the race this week to find out what mode of transport is the fastest and the most satisfying for the daily commute to work.
The Travel Challenge organised by the Centre for Transport and Society and UWESU, saw nine competitors each choose a different mode of transport - car, motorcycle, cycle, bus and walking boots.
The motorcycle was first to arrive at UWE in 16 minutes, closely followed just two minutes later by the cycle (18 mins). Car (38 mins) and Bus (40 mins) were next to arrive, followed by the walker in 58 mins.
The commuters all started from the same point on Gloucester Road, approximately 3.2 kms from the main Frenchay Campus.
