So, I did a quick trip to London last week, so thought I’d share a couple of my photos. (bike related of course)
Yup, of course I did another jaunt on the shared bike programme. Yes, it was still good, and the motorists were still friendly. One thing I did notice, however was that it was definitely more difficult to navigate around a strange city on a bike than it is on foot. Firstly, as it’s hard to navigate traffic with a map in one hand. Secondly, because everything happens faster, and lastly, simply because it is not always that simple to make a u-turn when you’ve gone past the road you want to (particularly in the city where there are lots of one way streets). I feel as if the bike programme really works best for a short trip where you know where exactly you are going.
This is a paramedic transport bike I saw at Heathrow airport. As the airport is so big, I think a bike would make the perfect paramedic vehicle. Quick, able to carry stuff easily, and easy to get around – super cool!
