    Run, Forest, Run!

    Or take a detour to http://www.soane.org/ and have a poke around.

    Depending on your taste quick wander around covent garden, the strand, somerset house

    or the british museum is right on the way between those two

    Pop into the Cider Tap( just outside Euston) to enjoy a refreshing pint of Bee Sting perry in the sun. Marvel at the glass ceiling in the British Museum. You could take a trip to Condor on Grays Inn if road riding’s your thing & you’re up for a bit of a detour (still a fairly nice walk).

    I’ll be around Bloomsbury this afternoon, I’ll keep a look out for anybody matching your description! Best of luck with the interview.

    I’m in that there London this morning for an interview. If you see a yokel in an ill fitting suit staring wide eyed at the tall buildings do say “hello” and calm my nerves…..

    More importantly, is there anything worth seeing or doing somewhere between Shaftesbury Avenue and St Pancras after lunch? Or should I just head straight home and get ready for a sunny and mud guard free ride tonight before hitting a beer garden?

    nicest thing I did round there went I was in the vicinity recently was the Wellcome Collection (opposite Euston station).

    They’ve got an exhibition of Japanese outsider art. Totally lovely.

    😯 From the thread title I thought that you may be a hitman with a tight deadline 😉

    Good luck with the interview btw

    If you’ve never ridden the chaos of London, how about a Boris bike hire? A risky, adrenalin-fueled activity could be great to celebrate or offload any stress/nerves.. Go easy around those big, red buses 😉

    Good luck by the way

    Why are Police cars red down here? Is it so us bumpkins wonder at the tiny fire engines?

    British Museum for me, elgin marbles hall, bit of Pointless Hanging Around in the main vaulted chamber, see if there’s anything temporary and interesting on… One of my favourite places.

    Any time not spent in work should be spent riding, to my mind……

    I think that diplomatic service police cars are red.

    OP – glad the interview went well and you came to your senses and went home for a ride
