london tube strike walking and cycle routes
Tomorrow evening threatens the start of a London Tube strike, so I've been idly looking at some cross town pedestrian routes. These involve the somewhat inscrutable overhead walkways around the Barbican on the way to a couple of meetings sprinkled around the northern side of town.
I think both venues are quite walkable without too much trouble, so I may just start out a little earlier than usual with some string and breadcrumbs.
There's also some handy walking and bus guides from many main line stations here
Additionally, there's going to be a several BikeTubes which are processions of cyclists commuting along the tube routes.
And I've had them for a long time, but don't forget the rather useful free TfL maps of bicycle routes through London.
Mind the Gap.
