26 miles on the London Bikeathon

Brian at the start Today Lorie and I (not Milo) took part in the London Bikeathon from Chealsea to Richmond Park, and back. This was the first time I had seen Richmond Park, and seeing it via bike on a nice sunny day was the perfect way to experience it. There were a few routes to choose from, and we were on the Scenic Ride, which meant we each got a wonderful light pink t-shirt. 

One big difference I noticed between this ride and ones I have been on in Washington State was at the rest stops. In the US, we get bananas, oranges, energy bars, water, and maybe a sport drink. On this ride in London, we got bananas and water, which was fine, but you had the option to purchase burgers and beer too.   

The ride was a casual 4 hours, which was about 3 1/2 hours of biking – all at a pretty slow pace, which is how Lorie prefers it. smile_wink 

I posted few other photos here.
