It took me some time to process these images, but finally, they are here.
As usual, the ride started from Waterloo Bridge. My office is situated near Wandsworth town so I approched it from the direction of Vauxhall. Not long after passing by Vauxhall, someone patted me on the back. Since I was wearing a Critical Mass t-shirt, he reckoned (rightly) that I was heading towards the starting point and asked me if he could tag along. I happily led him there as he turned out to be a really nice guy. His name was Sam and he worked as a paramedic. We exchanged some stories, he told me about one call that had happened a couple days before. A cyclist was knocked over by a LGV and even though his helmet was smashed into smaller pieces, it definitely saved his life.
As usual, the ride started around 7pm and we immediately caused a massive congestion around the IMAX theatre.
Superman was here, but this time he chose to use his humble and mind-mannered alter-ego.
A Googler, without street view cameras attached to his bike.
As usual, there were some angry motorists, who couldn’t cope with the thought that they might be stranded for a short amount of time.
Sam and his friends.
This guy’s bike sported a couple christmas tree lights, it was quite impressive.
