Transportation in London can be amazing & at the same time a total nightmare. Last week, the London Underground (aka "the tube") was on strike, so teachers and teaching assistants had to take buses, ride their bikes or mopeds and walk to schools throughout the city.
The biggest issue is navigating the city as the streets don't fall into a neat grid like we're so accustomed to in North America. So get a GPS, attach it to your handlebars using whatever creative ways you can find (or find a handy-dandy little attachment to clip your GPS to your bike) and ride to school.
If you don't want to fork over the cash to buy a bike, just find yourself one of Boris Bikes. Easy-peasy! Bet you'll feel like a proper Londoner when you're riding a bike to teach.
