Tonight, or to be more exact tomorrow morning at 0200hrs, I will be joining a few hundred of London’s cyclists to observe a modern day Midsummer ritual.
Commuter folk, couriers, Critical Mass riders and ordinary everyday bike folk will cycle from local meeting points to converge upon a succession of beigel bakeries, all-night cafes and coffee shops before riding en mass to Primrose Hill.
Here, we’ll all chat, talk bikes and before watching the sun come up as the longest day of the year begins at 0423hrs.
Afterwards, we’ll no doubt head off for a full English breakfast and pints of coffee in an effort to charge our batteries for what will certainly feel like the longest day at work. If you fancy joining the ride, those north of the Thames can join Tower Hamlets Wheelers feeder ride, those ‘sarf’ of the river can hook up with Southwark Cyclists.
