Discovering London...

Thanks to "The Wedding" and May Day, London was blessed with another long Bank Holiday Weekend - so what better way to spend the Sunday than a on a cycling Tweet-up? We met-up with the lovely @thefixedfactor for a cycle exploration of London. The route (which was suggested by Simon and planned by The Boy) covered some of the Docklands and the South East, including my old University stomping ground, Greenwich.

The weather is still being kind for the BH Weekends, so riding in a T-Shirt and Jeans combo was not out of the question... here was my Bike Wardrobe for the day:
Sunglasses: Gucci
Earrings: Grandmothers
Necklace: Tatty Devine
T-Shirt: See by Chloé
Watch: Sekonda
Jeans: Topshop
Sandals: New Look

Meeting point was 10:30a.m St Pauls. It was nice to get into Central London early - hardly much traffic & a relaxed ride. Parked-up at Paul for Coffee & Pastries to get us ready for the day ahead:
The Pashley and the Ridgeback...

Simon's Condor Pista - beautiful bike!

Once fuelled-up, we headed for the Docklands & South of the River...

Now if you follow me on Twitter, you know there is no way that I can't not mention food in the day :) Lunch Stop was at the Trafalgar Tavern - a beautiful pub in Greenwich that I have not been to since I left Uni - the food there is rather "Nom" & exactly what our bodies needed (along with some liquid refreshment, of course)

One of the most enchanting parts of the ride was "discovering" Russia Dock Woodland. It wasn't a part of our loosely plotted route & none of us knew that the place existed! It was a lovely surprise on our cycling meander, with some lovely bits of nature and life dotted along the way...

It really was a fantastic day, and such a brilliant way to explore more of the City!
Thank you Ian for the route and Simon for the suggestion... and thank you BOTH taking turns in carrying my Pashley up and down the stairs we encountered on the day - you are both utter Gentleman!

I can't imagine a better way to spend a Bank Holiday. And you look so fab, as usual.
