On facebook I found Walthamstow Family Bike Club which holds a ride every 2nd Sunday of each month, sometimes more.
I got suited up and headed to the local meeting point. I just left my house and heading down my road when another rider was coming the other way with a big smile on his face next thing I hear is "Hey I know you Bumble B right!"
Yes dear readers a fan of The Legend, a roadie no less. We stopped for a brief moment and he said that he read about me in the latest LCC magazine. Also commented on how cool Bumble B looked and never seen anything as crazy >:D
Well we said our goodbyes and I headed to the meeting point for the ride.

A few have mentioned that they will be attending "The London Bike Show" I did tell everyone that I would be there racing in the Folding Bike race on the 19th around 15:00hrs so hopefully I will have a little fan base to help cheer me on.
I love my evenings in front of the fire with a coffee and a read of the blogs; doing my rounds as I call it. Good pics and glad you enjoyed yourself. I'm impressed with your Garmin. It has just the right amount of info and displays everything clearly. I'm amazed at the amount of calories burnt. I was expecting half that figure. I suppose because it is sat driven and knows you have been up hills, I suspect it is a more accurate calculation. I did an hour on my indoor cycle trainer yesterday but don't have any computer attached to measure the equivalent miles but it meant that I could eat five homemade mince pies with cream later in the day without feeling bad.
Fantastic Pics as always. Keep the Blogs coming.ReplyDelete
