For the first time (ever) I had a go on the Boris Bikes today, which is also the first time in (over 15) years that I've been on any kind of bike. I guess it's true what they say - you really don't forget - although I confess to not having ridden anywhere near as fast as I could have run.
The space down by St James' Park is perfect for practicing, as it is also near Hyde Park once you've got your confidence up.
London is a wonderful city in the sunshine. More so when it's an unexpected 28 degree Indian summer in October.
