Multimodal transport

Posted in: Drivel

It occurred to me on the bus home that I used no less than seven modes of transport getting to and from a party tonight.

Walked to the Earlsfield station, caught the train to London Bridge. Picked up my Strida folding bike and popped my heely-wheels back in. Cycled back to London Bridge and heeled around in the station. Took the Tube to Tower Hill and then the DLR to Limehouse. Cycled to the party. Heeled around for the amusement of everyone else. Cycled back to DLR, heeled (pushing the folded bike - two at once!) through Tower Hill, taking the Tube to Embankment. Cycled up Villier's Passage and spotted the N77 bus which I rode ahead of and caught back to Southfields. Pulled wheelies in the driveway.

Didn't use a car: excellent.

Heelys Strida

In America people wonder "how do I drive there?". In Europe we wonder "which combination of public transport do I use to get there?"
