Earlyish start this morning. I was marshal for one of the 5 Cycle Friday bike routes in London, leading people into town. No rain, over cast, warm and close, one of the better days that summer had to offer this year, tempted people onto their bikes for a stewarded ride into work. Organised by the London Cycle Campaign and running every Friday for 10 weeks the rides are to encourage people who don't usually cycle into work for whatever reason to give it a try, it is also a great social bike ride with a great cross section of people attending. It is a real buzz when people have that epiphany and notice that cycling is enormously enjoyable and gets you to your destination far quicker than smelly public transport. Get involved, come along next Friday, I'll be starting from Finsbury park.
