Pride in London cancelled for second year

Well that’s Pride in London cancelled for second year in a row! But do think it’s for the best! But, I had been looking forward to it! Then way to many people have not been double vaccinated!! So it would not have been anywhere close to 75% safe going!!

Now really looking forward to London Pride 2022, since it will be best one YET!!!

Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2019

Got to say that Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle 2019 was so much fun! The weather could not have been better, was dry, mainly sunny and a lot less windy than it was last year!

This year, I did 36.68 miles. So up on last years 35.73 miles. Also I made it into London a hour later this time. Got into London Kings X just after 11:00am. Last year, was in London by 10am!!

Already starting to look forward to next years! It gets bigger and bigger each year!
