Canon Street is closed to traffic. The result:

  • London Bridge bus station is a solid jam of buses
  • The road out of London Bridge bus station is nose to tail buses
  • London Bridge northbound is a long traffic jam
  • London Bridge southbound (away from Canon Street) is a long traffic jam, presumably due to all the buses queuing to get into London Bridge bus station
  • Morgate is nice and quiet. (All the traffic is held up somewhere back on London Bridge)
  • Everything crams together so much that even the motorbikes are having trouble squeezing through the spaces. Heck, even the mountain bikes don't fit.

There's a reason I like racing bike handlebars...

Loading... please wait.
  • My brompton is equally thin, and I'm very grateful for it. I didn't realise quite how thin until I took my mountain bike to work one day. All of a sudden I had to stop before taking out people's wing mirrors... Now that would never do. We mustn't be rude at these people in their huge vehicles taking up the ENTIRE F**KING ROAD, just to transport little Johnny to school. Oh no.

  • Even though my handlebars are wider than those found on racing bikes I manage to squeeze through traffic quite well. A bigger hindrance is the child seat that's still on my bike (even though Samo is riding his own bike since several years).

    There are very few things nicer than speeding past cars in a jam (or even in slow-moving city traffic)
