- Boris bikes…will I die?
They weigh several tons.
Even in the highest gear of the three, you will be spinning the pedals like a madman.
if you don’t have the app, you will spend more time looking for somewhere to dock the bike at your destination than you did reaching your destination.
I still think they are great ( Though obviously the Brompton is the King…).Posted 5 years agoDezBSubscriber
But got there eventually?
Only 5 mins late. Ah, it was ok, there’s just one turning I keep missing and then haven’t got a clue where I am. Shame the weather has gone crap.Posted 5 years ago
Funny though – pedestrians seem as wary of the bikes as cars do. No-one’s walked out in front of me yet.bikebouyMember
Ok here’s a tip..
Look up. Find a point of interest and locate that. Then navigate around that focal point where ever you are in the city. As you develop the Skilz, locate a couple of them and navigate around them. Use them as reference points like you would on a trail. (tower 51 in Broadgate, Gerkin, BT Tower, Tower Bridge, Aldgate, 7 Dials, etc. etc. the porn shop on the corner near Tokyo Fixed etc. etc. )
If you constantly look down at the road you’ll get lost, you’ve no reference points see.
And yes, that’s the weather for you sometimes it rains.. But I bet you got a bike ok though yeah?? 😆Posted 5 years agoDezBSubscriber
It’s a good tip bikebouy – and my ref point is the Shard! It’s massive, but at the point where I get lost I can’t see the damn thing. That’s the problem with that London, the streets are lined with buildings! All I have to do is get from North of the river, to the river. But I’m thick as pigshit. (stupid 😀 )Posted 5 years ago
