    Yep, after trying both last week, I can confirm that Southwark Bridge was the better option. Thanks for the help!

    London Bridge is going to be undergoing maintenance until October, which is my preferred river crossing for my commute between Surrey Quays and Barbican.

    Anyone got any good alternative route recommendations?

    I've tried using Southwark bridge the last 2 days, but it's annoying to get onto it (you have to approach from Marshalsea Road/Southwark Bridge Road, and then annoying on the north side (lots of waiting at lights to cross roads and shared use paths).

    I imagine Tower Bridge is a mess because all the traffic that would usually take London Bridge is now taking that route. The Rotherhithe tunnel is deeply unappealing due to the smog and traffic at peak times.

    Should I just sit in the queue on London bridge? Or just put up with Southwark bridge?

    Have you lost weight/fat recently? I lost 16kg a few years back and I had to completely change saddles on all my bikes. What had previously been seriously comfy was no longer.

    Condor have a great selection of test saddles that you can borrow. In my experience you just have to test out plenty of shapes.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I do actually. Been used, but functional. DM me with an offer

    Anyone able to send me a link to a route for this? Or even just a Strava link to a previous year's ride? I'm keen to do this with a couple of other people who cycle at work.

    I realise this is probably too late, but I'm in rotherhithe. Anything I can do to help? There's a known bike lockup round here where it seems a gang keep their stolen bikes. Happy to point you in the direction of it and come help confront

    I've just started the process to file a claim. My shipping says it's due to arrive in Russia ...

    Ugh, I messaged them 5 mins after I placed the order to ask them to cancel. No reply, until a notification that they've posted it. I guess I'll just have to wait until it doesn't arrive and then do a dispute via PayPal. I'll set myself a reminder!

    I had not realised that, nope ....

    Whoops! Thanks for the heads up - I'll admit I did have to google what the difference was. I definitely want a drill driver for the flexibility. I'll keep looking!
