Climate Emergency bike ride

Next Saturday: the details here.

Last year’s ride attracted at least two London cycling bloggers, including the voice of Croydon and this phantom figure.

You get an escort of friendly bicycle police, who are all smiles because this is an orderly and strictly controlled event with polite, well-behaved environmentalists and no danger of things getting out of hand. Which is how cops like it. Also, they were getting paid to ride a bicycle. No wonder they were smiling.

Top tip. I was incredibly cold on the last one and wished I’d wrapped up better. Global warming? Common sense tells you that’s rubbish innit.
