#RideLondon #FreeCycle 2016: Mixed Feelings
LONDON HAS JUST BEEN BASKING IN THE DELIGHT OF THE 2016 RIDE LONDON AND AS USUAL, IT WAS A GREAT WEEKEND OF CYCLING.
For my family, it was the first time my wife and two girls participated in the Free Cycle event on Saturday, where a swathe of Central London was closed to traffic to enable people to cycle around in perfect safety. Not all roads were closed; some routes were open or partially open with marshal control, but it was well-planned and we had a great day.
I took the (idiotic) opportunity to bring the box bike up into Town so our 2-year old could take part and it was the to and from journey which leaves me with mixed feelings. The last few years, we have taken bikes up on the train and this was the first year I had ridden in (there is no way the box bike will fit on the train!)
