Bike
Although I use my main bike for most of my journeys, commuting can put a lot of wear and tear on it.  brakes can get a lot of wear, as can the chain and gears. Therefore it may be worth your while investigating getting a dedicated bike for commuting.

It can be worth your while investigating this since many companies offer a scheme that enables you to buy a bike tax free from your salary, if it is to be used for commuting and other business purposes.

If you do buy a dedicated bike, it may also be worthwhile investigating puncture resistant tyres (despite their worse traction and performance) since you will not be riding long tours on them.

My bicycle just had its yearly check over – cost a fortune to replace things! wear and tear is expensive.
