So I've just been offered a new job doing basically the same as I do now (warehouse labour, which I'm content with) but with more hours and permanent role. Its great, because the only downside to my current job is that its temporary agency work and I could get dropped any time. Its also 4-on-4-off which is ideal, because it'll give me the rest days to work on my music and do whatever - I can even live the kind of life I want to, I can go off camping 3 days a week if I want to. The shift and all is really ideal, only problem is that its about 10 miles away and I'm cycling. This will mean cycling 10 miles before a 12 hour shift and 10 miles back, to what should amount to 8-9 hours leisure, eat and sleep time before I'm up again. All is ideal except the travel really. I'm trying to turn it into a positive, its nearly Summer afterall and bike riding this time of year isn't bad, and the cardio exercise will do my lungs great. Has anyone had to travel so far so often on a bike before? Any anecdotes to share?
I'm happy about this either way. Good opportunity.
