Or Hooray! for bicycles. That said, I'm not looking forward to dealing with
lots more cyclists on the roads tomorrow evening - the morning isn't going to
be that different as there aren't that many people who cycle around at 6am.

It'll be interesting to see how fast the bike park at work fills up as well.

The tube strike wouldn't affect me that much however; even if I don't cycle[1]
in I only have to use the DLR and work is a nice 15 minute walk from Bank. Its
a nice and simple choice for me - go along one stop on the Central line or
walk for ~5 minutes more. Not a hard choice when it comes to it and its
usually quicker to walk than go to the Central line, wait for the train go
along one stop and then get back to ground level.

[1] Darn pesky nails; even with kevlar tires and slime filled tubes, there
    are some punctures which are just too big. Although the combo I used meant
    that I could still at least cycle home rather than getting an instant
    rim killing flat.
