You know never to check the weather forecast before organised outdoor events – but these days the forecasters are getting better and heavy rain hours before the start of the cycling event Right Royal Ride was not what we wanted at al and we arrived at the starting point in Holland Park expecting only a handful of diehard cycling enthusiasts. Fortunately a rather respectable bunch of Kensington & Chelsea cyclists awaited, pedals at the ready, to kick off this cycle ride around their Royal Borough. Finally even the sun showed up and the ride became a chocolate box trip through K&C's beautiful tree-lined streets in full blossom. The grand finale was a charity event with picnic and music at Holland Park. What a great start to the weekend.
