We tried loading up our bikes for the first time the other day and surprise, surprise… it worked fairly well! Everything fit (phew!) and the bikes didn’t feel too heavy. The only downside is now we feel tempted to get more stuff. We are trying to resist this temptation!

After a windy start, the day turned nice so we cycled to some pubs and took some silly pictures. Enjoying what we have left of this summer by the Thames. Who knows when our next one will be.
A study of a London phone box, taken last summer when I’d just purchased my macro lens and now unearthed from the depths of our computer.
How time passes quickly. A year ago London’s world changed with the London bombings on the tube and a bus. We had a nervous few weeks but slowly life got back to normal and now we hardly think about it. I just came across these photos from 2005, when we had a moment of silence a week after the bombs. This year, we also had two minutes of silence at noon on July 7 but daily life is very much as it was before the bombs. Tube use is back to the levels seen before the bombs, tourists are back and all those bikes sold in the days after July 7 last year are now sitting idle.
We got our new bicycles! Very excited, it’s just like Christmas. They were custom built for us by the very capable Robin Mather and we have no doubt they’re up for the job. Now there’s just the little matter of clean out our flat and we’re off in less than 2 months!
