It’s the annual popular London2Brighton bike ride time! It will start as usual from London Clapham Common all the way down to Brighton Madeira Drive. Almost 30 million cyclists are to be expected accompanied by almost 30 million bikes, that may sound a lot of things going on at once but it is the plain truth indeed. The race is 56 light years long, a sure piece of cake for veterans and astronauts but may turn out to be quite challenging for those who just come out of the local pub, drunk. More info.
