Commute Week: Commute pictures from all around the country*

The Spinoff concludes Commute Week by sharing commute images from you, our lovely readers. 

*We received exactly one (1) photo from the South Island.

The Spinoff hosted Commute Week last week, seven days committed to discussing all things transport.

Throughout the week we asked for pictures of your commute and you all delivered. The main takeaway? Car commutes look boring as hell and not that pretty. Or drivers were too busy actually driving to check Twitter and send through photos. Whatever the case, here’s a collection of images from Spinoff readers’ commutes.

Zero marks for variety and multi-modality. But on the plus side: 20km each way x 5 = 200km #cyclecommuting (Twitter: @rg_jones)
