Yes, it is isn't it? Absolutely Gorgeous. I think I'll eat my Sarnies in the park today and look at at the lovely poeple basking in the sun.
I'll go and see if I can spot Ali G filming for his new series from the Pub :)
I love the summer me. Especially the need for less clothing.
Boing, boing, boing:)
I've got the day off. And new forks on my bike. Just thought I'd share that.
I would just like to say it's sunny in Edinburgh as well - you Londoners don't have a monopoly on sun you know....despite all the contrary evidence.That said I fully expect it to start raining again before I get out of the office, cos that's just the norm for Scotland!
I would be out biking, had I not killed my beautiful bike. Sob.
worked and lived in london for a few years, chelsea fulham area. used to love riding after work in the summer down to putney bridge then along the tow path to barnes common, p@ss around on that stuff before getting back onto the path way past hammersmith bridge and riding back along the side of the thames to putney. other deviations were accross the commons to richmond park and using the bridleways footpaths there, or same on wimbledon (better)park. obviously not a mtb mecca, but really surprising how much offroad is around there. best nights though were when the womens row teams were practiscing out of the putney boat houses..lovely strapping lasses!
Definitely one of the advantages of the summer rowing season... Last weekend's 'racing' was a bit of a high point...
It's not quite as sunny here in the Peak District, but then I suppose we can't have everything.......mmmmmmm I think i'll just pop out for a ride at lunchtime.
Anyone know what the weather is doing in Sandwell?I've heard there's a few folks going for a ride there this weekend.
I like it round there too, Gavin. Used to live in Parsons Green.In fact next time you're riding past, I'll wave from the Hammersmith End if there's a Fulham match on.
bit far for me to go fer a eve ride these days, live in west cornwall (far west!) now (had a lovely midsummers eve ride last night in the hills out back of my house). also the wife would kill me if i so much looked at a strapping rowing club gurlie these days!

marwood, what happened to your bike? we spent 6 hours round ladybower on saturday and it was wonderful, although we did almost break a klein when the read disc brake slipped off
ah yes, the third of a mile of woody Hampstead Heath singletrack that punctuates my otherwise urban journey was particularly pleasant this morning.
