I need to get to Mosquito after work but am severly navigationally challenged.

Anyone head that way?

or anyone suggest an easy route?

    St James -> Trafalgar Square -> cx road -> Shaftesbury ave -> Bloomsbury way -> theobalds road. -> roseberry ave -> St. John's road -> angel -> upper st -> islington green -> Essex road.
  • Yes - pretty simple to get there. Only real alternative is Traf Sq -> Strand -> Kingsway -> Theobalds (which is a left at Holborn Tube, right, right rather than a simple right at Thoebalds, IIRC).
    Swim. Bike. Run. Yeah. That's what I used to do.

    Bike 2-A

    Cheers Chaps, I was over complicating it.

    Head south until you reach the M25.
    Turn anticlockwise until junction 21.
    Follow the A10 to Great Eastern Road and its on your right.

    You're welcome.

    I hope you had good lights for riding on the M25!
