• A-Bike for a new office

    by  • 9th May 2009 • post

    Over the last 2 weeks we were moving our offices to Aldwych. Atticmedia has moved from Islington and BDP moved from London Bridge.

    This move has changed my commute route. Now I have to travel to the centre of London. On the Tube or bus this will be unpleasant.

    Recently, Boris ( the Mayor ) was talking something about using river service for commute.
    One day returning from Canary Wharf to Aldwych I have tried it. It’s a charge on top of Travelcard or you can get additional season ticket.
    But maan, I kinda fell in love with the Thames Clippers civilised way of travel.
    No sweat, no pushing around  and there is a bar if you want to have your morning tea/coffee – I’ll add that’s cheaper than coffee shops.
    Now, to make my commute affordable I have resign from Travel Card, what means that I will not be able to use DLR to get to Canary Wharf Pier.

    This is where all these people around with bikes started working their magic. I kinda decided that a foldable bike may be an option. I had paid a visit to couple bike shops with my colleague and while he was recommending the full sized ones I couldn’t stop thinking about the ultra small one which I’ve seen on the Internet. He said the magic word ( A-bike ).

    Today I’ve ordered my first bike. The A-Bike. It has all what I need to get from Poplar to Canary Wharf and from Embankment to Aldwych without all the drawbacks of a full size bike.

    Will see how it all works out.
