On yer bike! Make the most of this splendid summer and join in Ride London from 9th-10th of August. Spanning many open locations across London, the Ride festival is not only about cycling but events and activities from giant Jenga and balance bikes in Green Park for the kids, to a pedal-powered garden party in Tower Hill. You can enter and exit at any point along the route, do as many laps as you like and come and go as you please so there's no pressure, just fun!
Now *this* is the kind of bicycle I would like. If I were to have a bicycle. Which is unlikely in Australia I must admit since it's rather pointless riding to feel the wind in your hair when it's covered by a helmet. I'd get one to use in London if I could figure out a place to store it!
