I thought email had killed the bike courier? Not so. It’s the 1980s all over again as Guns N Roses use bike couriers to rush long-awaited new album to select music retailers.
Cars, buses and taxis get bunged up on Oxford Street - the most obvious candidate for pedestrianisation in the world - but bikes will always get through.

There’s a double page spread in the Bike to Work Book which documents how bikes will always beat cars in rush-hour traffic. View the online PDF here. Combined with an earlier version, it’s already had 2000 views. The sampler can also be downloaded automagically via my iTunes podcast feed thingy.
