National Commute Smart Week

Commuting is one of the many reasons why people become shedworkers, but if you absolutely have to commute, then it's worth following the events in this week's National Commute Smart Week programme organised by the Work Wise UK folk. In general it aims to encourage commuters to adopt smarter working and commuting practices: today it's all about Flexible Working and Travel Plans in conjunction with ACT TravelWise . Look out later this week for:
* Tuesday - Walking
* Wednesday - Cycling
* Thursday - Health benefits of smarter commuting
* Friday - Road congestion and road safety

Here's a taster of what they say:
"The average UK worker now spends 360 hours or 45 working days per year travelling to work . This works out as about 2906 miles per annum per worker resulting in the staggering figure of approx 78.5 billion miles travelled by the UK workforce each year. The knock-on effects of an often stressful and lengthy commute to work, are felt not just in terms of poorer work/life balance for the worker, but also by the UK economy as a whole."
