Default Cyclist tries to get Boris bike onto a double decker

I thought a bicycle was viable transport, especially in London?

In London, yes.
On a double-decker bus, no.

All this proves is just how viable pedal cycles are as a form of transport.
When was the last time you tried to put your car on an aircraft?

Perfectly feasible.

Along with a few others, I once travelled from Lakenheath to Ramstein by
air. We had seats (of a sort) but had loaded an Austin van onto the
aircraft. And it was free of charge (it isn't what you know, it's who
you know). It was a few years ago, mind.

And as if that were not enough to answer your question, you could always
have a look at: https://www.retrowow.co.uk/transport/air_car_ferries.php

PS: So are you out of that place now? Hope the nurses were kind to you.
