Don’t be fuelish!

Today I’ve got just one simple idea for saving on fuel. You’ve probably heard it before, but it bears repeating!

Here’s the tip: walk or cycle short distances rather than taking public transport. Not only does this get you fit, and maybe save you money, but it also makes space on the buses and trains for people taking longer journeys. Less people means less need for more vehicles burning fuel.

Also, if, like me, you live in wonderful London, you’re missing all sorts of lovely attractions as you zoom around town in buses or trains. We’ve got so many wonderful buildings, many of which bear closer inspection as they’ve got lovely architectural flourishes around the roof and pillars. Try taking a few different routes between regular destinations and see what you can find!


  1. Mrs Sew & Sew,

    As a resident of a small city, it is far easier for me to get to the centre ahead of traffic when cycling. However, I do get the strangest looks from chaps as they pass me slowly with big smiles and thumbs up.
    Is it really an oddity to look fetching on a bicycle? Doesn't everybody do killer heels and fancy hats? the mind boggles...

    Fondest regards,
