Feeling fit? Why not take to your bike this Saturday? The whole family can come along too! Ride along eight miles of traffic free London roads – all ages and abilities can take part. Starts at 9am – check the website here
There are also other competitions that you can watch if you don’t feel like cycling: Prudential RideLondon Classique, which is the women’s race takes place at 5pm on Sat 30th starting on the Mall. If you hang around long enough, you will catch the Brompton World Championship starting at 7.15pm in St James’s Park. There are 500 entrants and before they can start pedalling, they have to unfold their bikes!!!
On Sunday the serious guys are out doing the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, which is a taxing 100 mile ride from London, round the scenic Surrey Hills and back to London again. This starts at 6am in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Once these tired cyclists are back, then 150 professional cyclists will race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, starting from St James’s Park. Rumour has it that Chris Froome will be one of the riders this year, fresh from wining the Tour de France last week. Good luck to all!
Butterflies at the Natural History Museum
If this all sounds just too exhausting, then why not try something much more leisurely. Visit the East Lawn at the Natural History Museum and wonder at some amazing tropical butterflies including the moon moth, the swallowtail, blue morpho and many others.
