London's Naked Bike Ride
Picture is from a couple of years back, when I was able to ride it. Unfortunately, yesterday apart from a brief 60km early in the morning I was car-bound and unable to join in. Not just car bound but continually stuck in traffic, as is so common in London these days. Looking at the mile after mile of near stationary traffic (it was the same the other side of the road) and the glum faces in the cars, it struck me that this one simple message - we CAN change this, one car ride at a time, we need to stop being dependent on oil - is one to take away from the ride. Not every journey is possible by bike - I was in a car, after all - but so many are.
