It's back to school again and ofcourse your late for registration.
iBikeLDN: Back to School ride was to go though the parks & canals of West London.
The weather was forecast to be raining between 14:00 & 16:00 hrs today but I personally didn't mind. I'm at the stage now that rain doesn't bother me to much on rides these days.
Well I got to Speakers Corner, near Marble Arch alittle early.
Took the time to look around Speakers Corner and take a few snaps of Bumble B before everyone turned up.

I have to say it was a much faster pace than other iBikeLDN rides but then again there wasn't so many riders to it was easier to keep a decent pace going.
Not long into this part of the ride disaster struck, my new headlight hack to put the CREE headlight on Bumble B's front wheel broke. The actual Brompton metal holder that normally holds the front reflector snapped, lucky I spotted this before the headlight got caught up in the spokes. Headlight didn't break so I just disconnected it and put it in my pocket.

|Harry, look out for a fb profile soon|
|Big kids going around & around....|

Afterwards we explored the gardens of the park and found a very nice maze which ofcourse a few went though to find the center. I took the easy path and just opened the gate to the center :D
|Ain't you supposed to be in school?|
|Drinking school kids?|
Old Ship pub (25 Upper Mall, London, W6 9TD) right next to the Thames river which I've been to before and its a DAMN GOOD pub.
Another great ride with the iBikeLDN folks and ofcourse my cycling buddies old & new is always good.
Can't wait tilt he next one.....
