After a good sleep, it was time to go and have a look around the city of London.
Amanda and I had previously ridden the tandem in from Gregs so I had a reasonable idea where I was heading.
The ride in was cool. I stopped in at a bike shop to get a bike lock, as I had left mine at home due to the weight.
The dude did not recommended the one I asked for as this would not deture the local thieves.
The one he recommended needed a truck to carry it round so I decided not to get one and not to leave the bike on its own.
Once in town, it was a sweet ride along the Thames path checking out all the sights.
I then left the river and rode down to Buck Palace to see if the Queen was about.
Again mega people everywhere.
I then headed back past Big Ben just in time for him to strike 12.00 o'clock.
He sounds a lot like the bell in the AC-DC song hells bells.
I then just followed the river as best as possible heading down stream till I got to tower bridge.
London is a big place, It's a pain to have to go underground every time you want to go to a different spot, so a bike is a good way to get around.
I am sure, I rode my bike a lot of places that I shouldn't but as I was not leaving it alone, I thought that it was OK! !
By the time I got around all of this I was a bit shagged, so I found a nice bar on the rivers edge and had a pint and some food. A fiver for a pint of very average warm IPA.
I then set about my homeward journey and made it back to Gregs after about 5 hours of riding.
Not sure how far, but my legs tell me another 40 od k.
Well, good times yet to be had so I will update you again tomorrow
