Ask at the station how much a rail season ticket (as opposed to a TFL travel card) will cost. I used to save money by getting a monthly ticket from East Croydon to KW rather than a 5 and 6 travel card. Once I started using the trams regularly, I needed the travel card though.

My journey to college is a little over 6 miles, as I mentioned here. If the roads are clear, and I'm going fast, I can do that in 20 mins. The thing is though, the roads usually aren't clear, and I don't want to participate in a cycle race every day of the week. It takes more like 40 a lot of the time. The other day, I got from my desk to the sofa in 45 minutes of fairly relaxed cycling - so that includes bike unlocking and so on.

This is still faster than the tube, which takes 50 if it's working, and arbitrary lengths of time if it's not.

I wouldn't recommend you go from 0 cycling to 19 miles every day in one step. You might find that you want to do that in time, but certainly don't budget for it.
