London Messengers and Commuters


by Byron on Dec 07, 2007 at 11:13 AM

Rode with the commuters and messengers this morning. Talked with several commuters about their ride and all of them were quite proud of the London Cycling Campaign and noted how much it had changed in the past 3 years.


I don’t doubt there’s still much work to do … other cyclists offered help. With the roundabouts, one-way streets, and traffic, I was lost and that was obvious. I rode along the Mall, Hyde Park, and more.

Yahoo! and the other search engine


by Byron on Dec 06, 2007 at 3:24 AM

Riding to the Yahoo! Developer Summit, I met Chris from Ask.com, asked where to go, and he showed me the way. Chris told me about his urban assault commute in London and we rode in traffic, sidewalks, crossing roundabouts, and most of it was a blur, but I arrived intact and safely. It was raining, 40 degrees, and I felt right at home.


The wrong side of the road thing confuses me most at intersections and roundabouts, so I just wait for other cyclists and see where they go.

Holiday Shopping Alert

If there was ever a reason to buy everyone you know (loved ones, the mail man) a bike, this would be it. Germans may love David Hasselhoff, but I think even they would want to jump OUT of their cars when they see this video.

London’s Bike Thieves


by Byron on Dec 05, 2007 at 8:16 AM

And it was at that moment, reading the paper about bike thieves in London, that I realized I’d forgot to pack the lock! Well, ok, I can fold it and take it with me into most places … that also explains all the thoroughly locked bikes on racks I saw during the cab ride into town.


While listening to Police & Thieves, by The Clash, I read more about cycling in London:
