Windows & Death – a Fridays Ride

As my resolution – to keep this blog more regularly – started on 1st January, I wasn’t going to make an entry for the “Windows & Death” Ride on 29th December.

But my friend SwarmCatcher has written up her account and published it today.  So I think I can at least offer a link to her blog at “Bikes & Bees”. You’ll also find a link to her rather good photographs at the bottom of her article.  She caught me on my Leninist soapbox at Clerkenwell Green:


My photographs are here.

My route, from Euston to the start at Hyde Park Corner, on to All Bar One at Shad Thames, and back to Euston, is here.

Many thanks to Simon and all my Fridays friends (aka Friday Night Ride to the Coast aka FNRttC) although, like the Holy Roman Empire, this was neither on a Friday nor at night-time nor to the coast.

A New Year’s Day Ride

So … starting again … in 2013.

What a beautiful morning!  A simple out-and-back ride to meet up with some cycling friends at a café that opened specially for us.

Sixteen miles of sunshine and plenty of friendly sunshine at the café too.

The route is here.

Many thanks to Max Scott and Kettering CTC for the organisation. And to the lovely people at Wood Meadow Café.
