I’ve been cycling to work for the last several weeks and I think this morning was the first morning where the sky has been blue and sun was shining, I even awoke early as the sun streamed through the bedroom window.
Grabbing my camera, I decided to take some photographs of the various sites en route to the office, in London’s Barbican. So setting off from Brockley SE4, I rode through Peckham, cross the Old Kent Road into Bermondsey and then crossing Tower Bridge.
Shooting past the Tower of London I was soon in the City passing Moorgate before arriving at work – a great ride on a beautiful summers morning. unfortunately, it was raining hard for the return journey home!
The famous Rivoli Ballroom in Brockley – a beautiful ballroom (one of few left in the UK) which is jam-packed with original features inside – its one of my favourite venues in London.
Crossing the railway line between Brockley and Peckham.
Peckham Rye Common – that way!
