From Woolwich to Canning Town
Just as I was resigned to making long trips to North Greenwich tube station I discover that the brand new Dockland Light Railway (DLR) has finally opened this week at Woolwich Arsenal. Yippee! It only takes me 10 minutes to cycle to this station and then I can journey via a slightly different route to Seven Sisters or Central London and still save money. I was working at Job no 1 in Central London today and I was at Oxford Street in just under a hour with the bike. I had forgotten the fun of travel on the DLR where you can sit in the front carriage and look out and pretend you’re driving. Like being a kid again.
