Location: Olympic Way, London, United Kingdom
It was quite a thrill riding on closed roads through central London and down into Surrey, finishing on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. The morning was dry and partly sunny, but heavy overnight rain had left loads of large puddles and standing water, making things damp to start with and lots of people stopping to fix punctures. I suffered two punctures too - so annoying!
Iceni Velo turned out in good numbers, and most of us got together at the Hampton Court stop (25 miles in) for a chat, sharing of puncture woes and a few photos.
