Evening all, I've been asked to find out what a potential commute would be like from London (say Hammersmith but suggest other places that would be convenient to live) to near Luton via the M1 (has to be via the M1)Would be by bike and car (not at the same time natch)How long would it take?Is it it simply a non starter?Cheers
PLease can you tell me why it has to be via the M1 ?
Sorry, I should have been more specific, it's not central Luton but to a place to the west of the M1 that's v near Luton just off the A5 I think..if there's an easier way to there then please help out!
yep, i live near the A5 /M1 and when i bike in (to wandsworth so i go through hammersmith) the commute is around 1 hr - but as someone said there are carriageway roadworks on the M1 at the mo to possibly slow you down, tho your commute will be a lot easier than going the other way!!(and if the weather is nice you culd always go the twisty route through amersham etc )
So going against the traffic (ie heading north in the morning) will possibly be easier? Even in a car?
would it be Markyate?from Hammersmith to Markyate would be approx 46 mins (well, according to Microsoft Autoroute anyway)that takes you up to the A40, then along the A40 to the Hanger Lane roundabout, along the NCR to the M1, off at J9 (A5) and it's just up thereHTH
