1.07 miles from my front door to the bike shed nearest to the building entrance I need to take. It normally takes me 6 -7 minutes. Alternatively,
if I walk, I take a slightly shorter route which is about 15 - 17 minutes
walking time.

I've just returned minus a suitcase stolen from the back of my car containing
all of my cycling gear, t-shirts, shirts, travel iron and a Suunto T6 hrm.

Apart from that, the holiday was fine.
