I’ve spent a lot of time, too much time, squashed in the London Underground and wishing I was doing something like this instead.

If you like the look of this why don’t you head out sometime in the next two weeks and try something similar?
If you need help on how to make it happen the links on this infographic should help.

    Any suggestions on where to get a tube and what size???

  3. Pretty damn cool! I’m definitely going to do this this summer. I just ordered a tire on Amazon 😉 But one question: What’s the size of the wooden paddle you used?
