An Alternative to Sydney Commuting Traffic

Typically I ride my motorbike to client sites in the Sydney region. The motorbike is fantastic on Sydney roads, as there are many bus and transit lanes that bikes can use. Currently I am currently working across Sydney harbour at Double Bay. It takes about 1:15 minutes to drive a car from Manly to Double Bay at peak hour, or about 45 minutes on the motorbike. However, I have found another way to beat the Sydney traffic - kayak. The kayak takes about 60 minutes, depending on tide and wind. Since I often go out for a kayak before work on Manly Beach, it seemed logical to simply get out of bed later and kayak across the harbour.

I think I am going to enjoy commuting this summer.
