This weekend, Humanbean (occasional poster) and I went for a ride with a difference.
Took the last train from Malvern to London on saturday night arriving at midnight. We rode up to Parliament hill for a couple of tinnies and then in the twilight and as dawn was breaking went to explore parts of the centre of the city. Came back on the first train on Sunday morning at 8am and snatched an hour's sleep. Then since I was in the mood went onut on the Pompino for another hour Bike's are great arent they?
Covered 31+ miles playing in deserted streets, on steps and landscaping. Checking out the city architecture when you've got the time and space to gaze around without the traffic or pedestrians to worry about. Its been a couple of years since I used to live in London and I used to often ride around on Sunday mornings (though not quite this early ) on my own, so was good to get a few pics and do a few things I woudnt normally with a mate this time.
The route we took (note we didnt need to go East of Tower Bridge since there's nothing of note out that way).
Not many pics as it was for the most part too dark and I only have integrated flash, not to mention we were enjoying riding too much
Finally got to ride the escalator at Moorgate - been meaning to do this since I first saw it years ago
got this cool one of Mr Bunbury riding under an underpass near Southwark that had leds in the pavement
The GLA at 4:00 in the morning
And Mr Bunbury himself.
