Richmond Park// Summer, the prequel

All the deer, no idea
To celebrate the sun showing its face and enjoying it before it disappears again until June (it's bluffing, don't put your gloves away yet), I followed in Charles I's plague escaping Stuart footsteps and fled to Richmond Park

I love Royal Parks. I look out beyond all the Lycra-ed up racers and imagine Henry VIII and his crew hunting around and jousting each other as we ride around not getting gout or obese.
Cycle style: The jumper scarf. 
When you want to take off a layer but have nowhere to put it. The struggle is real.
Out come the cycling shorts. My version of cycling shorts.
Sharing is caring. This is my buddy Sophie who used to get my hand me down school uniform until she grew taller than me. Here she is on my old bike (remember that guy?) wearing one of my spare helmets.

Picnic pit stop. My bike well prefers this to being locked up outside Tesco.
Look at all the natures.
Home via the traffic-free Thames path. It's nice to give your bike a break from city cycling every now and then.

View from my bike

Can you believe the London Eye is 15 years old already? It will be finishing school and getting a National Insurance card soon
I never get bored cycling around my city. It's constantly changing and I notice new things every day. I always look around and think of all these amazing sights I would miss out on if I was standing under someone's armpit on the tube.
As it's turning into spring I thought I'd share some of the sights I've been enjoying recently in-between taking off layers and losing gloves.

Happy 5th Birthday Ecobici

 So Mexico City's public cycle hire scheme, Ecobici, celebrates its 5th birthday. I have such fond memories of my time riding around that amazing city with them so here is my homage in photographic form. Cue music....

Brooks England x Levi's Commuter

It's a given that you will ruin many pairs of trousers cycling. I've hulked many pairs of jeans over the years on my bike. While we can all accept that fault and even boast that it is a sign of wear and tear, ruining saddles with denim stains is a different matter. In recent years I have favoured pink, orange and (stupidly) white saddles, all of which have in no time become grubby due to cycling in jeans.

The Girl's Bicycle Handbook book signing

My brother was looking for a present to buy me and he found this book he thought I'd love. In the queue to buy it he had a quick flick through the pages and sent me a message saying; "You are so hard to buy presents for. I found a book I thought you'd like but you are in it so you probably already have it."

Michaux Ambassador

My bike and I have been riding around decked out in Michaux. Here are some images from a quick photoshoot we did at one of my favourite places, the Turquoise Island in Notting Hill. Check out my five minute interview on the Michaux website.
