A couple of broken spokes which was nearly much worse has left me high and dry and without a bike until next week. so it was the wonderful buses, DLR and Jubilee Line this morning, which by some miracle all worked perfectly. There's a first for everything. That said, the bus was bloody slow; anywhere where the bus lane is blocked or non-existent and the bus just crawls along. I really don't undertsand why all bus lanes aren't 24 hour, why bus lanes aren't on all major bus routes, and why parking in bus lanes is allowed. It makes no sense that potentially hundreds of people can be made late to their destination just cos one van driver fancies a late full English Breakfast at the greasy spoon caff.
