Cars in London.. it can be hard work to drive into the centre of London.. the Congestion Charge..£8 per day.. finding parking, the cost and the fines..if you get one can become very expensive..and if they tow your car..
Motorcycles in London.. Using Motorcycles & Cycles to get around London ourselves..we think its normal.. but for those that are not City Bikers..it can be lively. Nothing quite like fifty bikes leaving the traffic lights at the same time... There is parking provision for Bikes in London.. but the explosion in their use means the parking capacity has not yet caught up..
It is much less Hectic at weekends.. We generally think it's worth doing.. but you must always Lock it.. We can supply extra locks/chain.
