I want to ride my bicycle

I have been trying to use the Barclays cycle hire since a long time ago. So last week on a not so common sunny Saturday I went to Waterloo and took one of the bikes. The system operates 24 hours, just use your membership key or pay the access in the terminal in any of the 400 docking stations, as they say just turn up and go.

The Bikes

Two hours journey around Westminster for a while then decided to have a bite in Covent Garden, after my stop for lunch I took another bike and went towards Chelsea, just at the north bank of the Thames, made a small stop to contemplate Battersea Powerstation while listening “Shine on your crazy diamond”.

 A small pit stop to have a Guinness in the King William IV pub in Pimlico. Then to end my journey I cycled around Sloane Square to finally reach my destination in Chelsea.

Bicycles remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Seven” where Elaine gets in love with a bike she wanted when she was little.

Elaine: Oh, look at this!
Jerry: Boy, I miss the days they made toys that could kill a kid
Elaine: Oh, cool! Look at that!
Jerry: Yeah, I'm right there with you
Elaine: That is a Schwinn Stingray! And it's the girl's model! Oh, I always wanted one of these when I was little
Elaine: What do you think Jerry? Jerry?
Jerry: Huh?
Elaine: What do you think?
Jerry: Oh yeah, be great for your paper route
Elaine: I love it. I'm getting it
Elaine: Can you help me get it down, Jer? Jerry?
Christie: I think your friend needs some help over there
Jerry: You know, the only way to really help her is to just let her be
