Today we dropped a slightly grumpy Sherlock at school, then ran in the park (and Danger engaged in some underhand splashing ambushes as we cooled off by dunking our hands in the fountain.) before it got too completely scorching.
A bit of time at home, showering and ... well, showering ;) and we were ready to go off and play with some bikes!
The blokes there were lovely. Happy to let us try out whatever they had.
So Danger tried out this one:
Then, of course, he tried the one he's been in love with all week. That seemed to go well. I think he's in love.
I tried this one:
And we both tried one of these:
John tried a few more too. It's a big bike dealer, so they don't just stock BMWs (obviously), and it's good to get your leg over a few, get the feel for the different positions, ride quality, all that :)
And after all the excitement, we picked Sherlock up and he rode on my shoulders all the way to the park, around the park, enjoyed ice cream - and I even had an iced coffee - and now I could very happily have a cold bath and a large fan. As it is when I asked John to fan me he just chucked a cushion at my head. Charming.
London isn't too nice in the heat.
