HOW DID I GET THERE?
My getaway to Bics Garden Lekki was a swift one. I left my house in Ikorodu around 9:45 hours and arrived the venue by 11:00 hours. Although, that Saturday wasn’t a busy one, unsteady rainfall almost ruined my trip.
Alighting the BRT at Marina, I boarded a bus headed for Lekki while staring at Google Maps all through (I didn’t want to get lost). The second leg of the trip lasted for a couple minutes and eventually, I alighted again at Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1 or Phase 1 for a bike ride to Bics Garden and Boat Club.
