85,000 people took over London’s roads in this years Skyride.
A member of staff looks on as cheery Londoners cycle past.
Give people a chance to be a little bit quirky and express themselves and they’ll take it. With beautiful results!
The cheery “lollypop” staff who try to organise the mayhem. Some people appreciate them more than others!
“The sight of hordes of cyclists pedalling their way along traffic free roads past some of London’s most glorious landmarks, and in the midst of a truly carnival atmosphere brought joy to my heart. We are bringing a cycle revolution to the streets of the capital and I am sure that today we persuaded thousands more Londoners that pedal power is the way to go” Boris Johnson
“Hordes of cyclists”
Some looked happier than others..
Kids definitely enjoyed the Skyride the most as they tried to pedal as fast as they could while the parents shout behind them to slow down and to be careful.
The Skyride must of been a surreal sight for most tourists walking past trying to see Buckingham palace.
The best place to see the Skyride from was clearly one of these trailers.
