John Holah, 36, is from Earlswood, Surrey. He works as a web developer in east London. John says it’s not just on strike days that it’s quicker to cycle the 50-mile (80km) round trip to work.
Rail passengers have faced more travel chaos as striking train drivers hold the first of six, day-long stoppages planned for this month.
The strikes will affect hundreds of thousands of people who use the Southern Rail network in England every day.
But many commuters say strikes are just part of the ongoing daily disruption to Southern’s service that is having a huge impact on the way they live.
Businesses are suffering and some workers have had to stay at home, while others have tried to find alternative routes into work, they say.
Frustrated by the continuing disruption, three passengers and a cafe owner agreed to video blog their mornings.
