Ok so this isn't actually a bike ride as I was taking the kids with me, but it is bike related lol.
We caught the train into London to watch the final stage of The Tour Of Britain ride 2011 Stage 8 the TFL  London stage. On arriving at Westminster Station we made our way round to Whitehall where we saw  a stunt team display.
