Well the crazy folks at iBikeLDN thought up another ride but this time in South London.
As always for the iBikeLDN rides we met up in Hyde Park. according to the Facebook event there would be just over 100 people attending the event and it sure looked it.
May quiet a few Bromptons and a few new faces to the fold as well.
In no time at all we all started off around Hyde Park.

We then headed off South of The River Thames. We ended up near Portobello Road Market where there is an alley way where graffiti artists paint walls with some crazy and creative artwork.
|The Legend is a moving piece of art|
Our next big stop was the Imperial War Museum, started to get a little cold at this point as we where there for quiet a long time. Another layer needed next time I think.

I heard though the grapevine that someone who had ran with the Olympic Touch had brought it would them. Everyone made sure they had a photo with The Touch

Another surprise on the route was this WWII Russian Tank painted white
The basic story was that a father bought this tank for his son but the council said he couldn't put a tank on his own land. I guess he really showed them. The barrel is pointing towards the Town Hall LOL.

The next surprise was this awesome restored Windmill. I have to say I was pretty surprised to see this sitting there.
We then headed off to Battersea Park. With the open park a few of us managed to get abit of a good fast ride on. Afterwards we went though the Brompton Cemetery. I'd always heard about it but never been.
Another good ride and the biggest this year, people wise.
Thank you iBikeLDN folks, you did a goo job with so many. Can't wait for the next iBikeLDN ride
Also managed to use my new Carradice Barley saddlebag which I have to say is awesome. It's HUGE and I had just about everything inside it needed for a big ride. Review on that soon...
As always my Garmin Edge 800 Data below.
