I didn't pass my practical driving test until earlier this year. Therefore in the past I traveled to work my bike, bus or train. For my first teaching job my friend gave me a lift in her care. Then in my second year of teaching I traveled to school on my bike. That was a short contract to cover for a teacher that was ill. Then I got another teaching contract at a school further away. I went there on my bike, then by train and lastly on my bike. There was a bus from my village to that area but annoyingly it didn't start early enough in the morning. That was a maternity leave teaching post. Then in my third year of teaching I had an interview at a village school. One of my friends had given me a lift up there from the school that I went to by bike combined with the train. I was so happy to get that teaching contract from May to October with the summer holiday pay. Going there my bus was a nightmare and it was just as by bike and train. Therefore I cycled there and it was a six mile journey. When that contract ended I traveled to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. In my fourth year of teaching I got a job in a village school with very well behaved children. The head teacher made me stop cycling because the country roads had fast drivers on them. I had to find accommodation there which was difficult. Then I walked to work. Then I got a job in a school where I stayed for years. I cycled to school and it was a picturesque journey. It kept me fit and healthy. Now I teach part time and care for my disabled son. I travel in my car and by train sometimes. I miss teaching full time and going to work on my bike. Cycling is a way of saving money and keeping fit when going to work if it is not too far.

I live outside the downtown core in one of the suburban areas. I used to drive to my work in the downtown core before. It takes about forty-five minutes with all the traffic jams. But now, with the gas prices rising, I have switched to taking the public transport. It takes a but longer, but certainly is less costly.
