    no sitting at traffic lights for me either

    Why not? What does an MTB do that magically negates traffic lights?

    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.

    another thing i hated was vehicles stopping too close to the kerb in traffic so you cant get down the side of them – not a problem now, just hop on the kerb! 8)

    canal tow paths are good but pretty accessible to road bikes too tbf, although obvs miles more fun on a mtb.

    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?

    Haggerston BMX track is probably one of the more central places.

    Wtf has my riding got to so with a bus scraping its hubcaps on a kerb, esp is its 100 yards in front of me… I’m in Angel islington, the haggerston place might be favourite! Cheers
