i dont use the main roads, just the back streets, passageways and ginnels. ill go down one way streets on the pavements, through parks and squares. just means i can go anywhere, which i realise some people will moan about but i care not. this is always at about 6.30 am anyway. if i do meet a red light ill just turn left, find another way.
I live in Lancashire where riding my mountain bike is king, but i also work away and spend all week in London. I dabbled in a few road bikes to commute between my digs and the office, but they either got nicked or broke a lot and tbh i didnt enjoy riding em, i find road bikes repugnant. So now ive got a little Kona Stuff hardtail. My trip to work is miiiiles more fun. I can baz down flights of steps, do a couple of drop offs, bounce over central reservations, bunny hop over speed bumps, its brilliant! no sitting at traffic lights for me either, i dont have far to go so thats not an issue either… anyway, i was just wondering if there was anywhere else i could take my little jump bike in London of an evening, any BMX places or pump tracks knocking about, or maybe just some cool urban trails?
