Thanks to “The Wedding” and May Day, London was blessed with another long Bank Holiday Weekend – so what better way to spend the Sunday than a on a cycling Tweet-up? We met-up with the lovely @thefixedfactor for a cycle exploration of London. The route (which was suggested by Simon and planned by The Boy) covered some of the Docklands and the South East, including my old University stomping ground, Greenwich.
The weather is still being kind for the BH Weekends, so riding in a T-Shirt and Jeans combo was not out of the question… here was my Bike Wardrobe for the day:
Meeting point was 10:30a.m St Pauls. It was nice to get into Central London early – hardly much traffic & a relaxed ride. Parked-up at Paul for Coffee & Pastries to get us ready for the day ahead:
One of the most enchanting parts of the ride was “discovering” Russia Dock Woodland. It wasn’t a part of our loosely plotted route & none of us knew that the place existed! It was a lovely surprise on our cycling meander, with some lovely bits of nature and life dotted along the way…
It really was a fantastic day, and such a brilliant way to explore more of the City!
