2013: Week 31

We all set off in Week 31 to take part in RideLondon, a completely manic ride with thousands of other cyclists through central London. As you can see from the above, we passed by the most famous London landmark of all, but we rode past plenty of others, too, including Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's, the Tower of London.

RideLondon is the successor to the Sky Ride, which we also did. Central London is closed to automobile traffic, but it is still completely mad because so many people take part. But there is definitely a special thrill having the roads taken over by cyclists and gliding past all the places that make London London.

We managed two loops-- 16 miles-- before the crowds got to be too much and we headed home. It definitely was something special though.
