Magical Mystery Tour

I was on my own today - and still without a map - so, I decided to use my intuition as my tour guide. If I could, I'd give myself a pretty good tip for the quality of the tour that I took myself on. I used my instincts to guide me. Erik is not so fond of this method. He would rather use a 'map' or some other 'credible' means of navigation.

I saw all of the typical landmarks - Buckingham Palace + armory, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, etc. Heading east along the Thames, I got a good glimpse of some inner city London neighborhoods. I'm impressed by the number of inner city parks in this city. I still struggled to find a congruent bike path, but I did find that my instincts guided me in a reasonably good direction. Plus, the weather conditions were better suited for cycling - it wasn't raining today (ie. I wasn't cold and wet or preoccupied with slippery manholes). London isn't so bad for cyclists afterall - as long as don't have any single specific destination in mind.

What I love about cycling in London is the fact that you're faster than all the cars. (And, no congestion charge.)

Yeah, it's a good feeling blasting past the cars. New York is good for that too.
