I can now adding the following three tube stations, to my list… Harrow-On-The-Hill, Uxbridge and Watford stations.
Got to say that Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2018 was so much fun! The weather could not have been better, was dry, mainly sunny, but a bit on windy side at times!
It was even better, since this year, since I talked a mate into joining me! Hello Mark! He enjoyed it, so much! He said, he’s more than up for joining me next year! Let’s just hope, he does not come off his bike next year!
We did 35.73 miles, I was hoping to do more… Then Mark, has not been doing that much cycling this year, so his body, is not fully use to doing longer cycles. He’s now got a year, to get himself ready for next years event!

Really starting to look forward to the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2018, which takes place this Saturday (27th July 2018). This will be my fourth time! But only my second time, going with someone else! Which means, you can look forward to lot’s of photos, all going well!!
Here are two photos from the very first Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle, way back in 2013!
Here are links to the stats from each time, that I’ve done the Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle.

Here are some other photos, I took while in London! I do really, just need to spend a whole day or two in London, just walking around! Only go, two or three times a year!

I can now say, that along with Cooper. I’ve now walked the whole of the Regent’s Canal in London from Limehouse Basin to Paddington Basin.
The first part of the walk took us from Limehouse Basin to London Canal Museum a distance of 7.3 miles!
Then we took a boat trip from the London Canal Museum through the Islington Tunnel, which is the longest canal tunnel in the south of England! If ever in the London area, I would really recommend you do! More info can be found out at canalmuseum.gttix.com/productdetails.aspx?productid=4720.
Then the second part of the walk took us from the London Canal Museum to Paddington Basin a distance of 5.2 miles!
Here are some photos from the walk!
The Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2017 was so much fun! Glad I went for the second year in a row! Even in the rain, everyone was having great fun! I am already looking forward to going again next year! Cycling around London on fully closed roads is so much fun!!!
Check out the route, I took, which also includes the cycle from Kings X station, on open London roads @ www.strava.com/activities/1107255648.
Oh and sorry, no photo at all! Since all my mates let me down! They only had a years notice, but till could not find the time! Maybe, I need to give them 10 years notice!
