My research into something to do in London that would appeal to my sports minded husband and to my interest in the nooks and crannies of the city lead me to Spoke N Motion. We couldn't have made a better choice. We chose the Deserted City Tour on a Sunday afternoon (2nd choice because the evening tour was full) However, i don't think the other tour could have topped this excursion around St Pauls, the Tower & Southwark.
Ian was a great guide, accommodating, truly committed & interested in his subject matter, engaging and a lot of fun. I really fell in love with the Brompton bikes, they were easy to use and another unique part of the experience. What could be more fun than whizzing across the Tower Bridge on a bike named Tinkerbell?
Ian encouraged us to take pictures...take him up on it! We were having such a great time riding, and asking questions about the city, we completely forgot to get a picture of us with the bikes, oops.
It was a grey day high 50's, but a windbreaker over a sweater was actually more than enough. We're 60ish, and although my husband's in great shape, it's been awhile since I'd spent time on a bike. The ride was still not problem for me because Ian broke it up nicely, and he kept us on the "correct" side of the road. Only problem....even Brompton hasn't figured out how to make a comfortable bike seat, and the next day you'll remember that you were riding day before, but believe me you'll still have a smile on your face.
Thank you Ian for adding the personal touch and making this a great day. We're hoisting another pint to you (Coors this time)!
