Tube strike hell? Simple, ride a motorbike

Why use public transport whe you could be riding?

In London many commuters are suffering from the recent bout of TSH or Tube Strike Hell, a regular complaint which only occurs when the RMT trade union and London Underground square up then fall out…as they often do. 

However, Dr. Bike Social has a cure; learn how to ride, or, if you can already, then why not get hold of a bike.  We have some simple guides below for both remedies.

The latest version of TSH comes as a result of plans to close ticket offices and the resulting job losses.  It began last night at 21:00 and will continue until 20:59 tomorrow night although the after effects could last until could last until Thursday morning.

So, for the 2.6 million of you who use the London Underground system each day, if the over-crowded and expensive public transport doesn’t work for you how about learning how to ride? 

Learn to ride - it's easy, cheap and fun. Even in the rain.

We even rode the London Marathon route recently, not any faster than Mo Farah managed to run it, but we still managed an average of 13mph in Central London traffic.  Now use that speed to calculate your journey through Central London and consider the benefits.
