* Gear up for the London Freewheel

– Sunday 21st September 2008, 8am, London

Not all cyclists can compete for Olympic gold, but those who haven’t made it to Beijing have still got something to look forward to.

The free, family-friendly celebration of cycling will give tens of thousands of riders a unique opportunity to cycle past the capital’s most iconic London landmarks at their leisure on roads closed to non-cycle traffic.

Building on last year’s inaugural event, which saw over 40,000 people take part, riders of all ages and all abilities will enjoy a carnival atmosphere and views of the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, and Buckingham Palace among other sights along the 12 km route.

Last year I turned up with the sound system and Shasha, and saw only two other people, Darren and Sue, promoting the green party on their bikes.

Any chance of a coordinated turnout this year?
