The bike test that shows what we're really like at work |

Cyclists commuting to work in LondonNot all cyclists are the same
Cycling through the City of London to work on a dark morning recently, I was overtaken by a man in a black coat with no helmet, no lights, and listening to music through headphones, writes Lucy Kellaway.
Idiot, I thought. As he disappeared into the underground parking of a large bank, I wondered - what sort of banker does a man like that make?
He got me thinking about the things we reveal about ourselves when we are on two wheels, and how useful that data could be to our bosses.
I've always fancied that as a group, cyclists make relatively good employees.
All of us are vaguely fit. We have the wherewithal to be reliable and punctual.
We are risk-takers and ever so slightly rebellious, which works quite well - especially in a job like journalism.
