I saw the Elephant and Castle Community Fund was looking for projects and the Onion Shed applied to run a bike club with four schools - the two I'm working with this term and two others I'll work with next term - focussed on riding in the area.
So far each club has had a Dr Bike, a playground session and a couple of rides. We've also got four pool bikes, a couple I already had and a couple that the lovely Squeaky Chains local community bike shop have provided for the rides.
During the rides, amongst all kinds of excitements, we've:
Seen the Street Art in Leake Street
Admired City Hall and Tower Bridge.
Visited the Christmas Market at the Southbank, seen doughnuts being made, and eaten them
Checked out the Berlin Wall in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park
and had an urgent loo stop there too
Danced in a stone circle to music from a fire breathing tuba
I kid you not - here's the top-hatted musician and the flame from the tuba with every note
And watched a tank being manoeuvred onto a low loader
in preparation for the Imperial War Museum's refurbishment.
As you can probably guess we're all really looking forward to the next rides!
