Not all of us are brave enough to bike through 41 degree Fahrenheit temperatures, especially when they come with gales and heavy downpours.

But thankfully, our bold correspondent and seasoned London biker Barry Neild suited up to show us around the city, which is working towards becoming a bike-friendly metropolis. Turns out the traffic-clogged city has a burgeoning bicycle culture. 

GlobalPost's Twitter feed showcases the voices and personal experiences of our correspondents based around the world each week. A different correspondent takes over the @AFridayIn account each Friday and tweets about his or her travels and daily activities.
