Rode in from my place & made it with about 5 mins to spare. Once again was met my fellow members of the London Brompton Club as we always have a good turn out for these things. Greetings & hugs where exchanged
After a brief safety talk, we set off. I would say there was about 80-90 of us in all.

Entering Brompton Cemetery. This is NOT a place where Bromptons come to die like some have commented. Bromptons never die they live forever.

Finally heading into Richmond Park where ALOT of other cyclists in training etc. The final stop was going to be at one of the carparks with abit of a cafe & toilets. Lots of green grass around so many folks had bough with them picnic stuff and set about on the grass near by. We where not the only ones and was actually pretty hard to find a spot under the shadow of a tree.
After a little awhile a few of the hardcore where gonna go on a circuit around Richmond Park I personally decided it was just alittle too hot for that which the sun beating down directly overhead and relaxed in the shade having a good chat.
Decided to head back home via the London Overground train and just as we was leaving Richmond Park I found a family member sitting on Bumble B.
Another Bumble Bee.
Being a kind hearted soul I tried to help the little fella on his way but he wouldn't move, even shaking pretty hard he didn't want to go. I think he was waiting for me to take a photo before buzzing off cause as soon as I took this shot he took off.

Check the iBikeLDN on facebook or the iBike London website for information on the next ride. Normally every month.
82 Degrees F sounds just about right to us here in NYC. Last Saturday I lead the Brompton bike Tour around central park in the mid 90's, great ride, but water breaks every mile: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152019045622802.1073741856.161623522801&type=1 Thanks again for the great blog, keep cool - JackReplyDelete
