Boris biking!2015-05-25 14.38.30Nick and I had never actually used Boris bikes before, but d’ya know what, they’re really fun! We headed down towards Hyde Park, found some bikes and hopped on. They have the little section in the front which you can strap a bag to which is pretty handy, and you just pay at the machine, unlock a bike and you’re good to go!2015-05-25 14.45.29We cycled along by the river, just cruising along at a leisurely pace (although I know Nick secretly wanted to go faster..!) and just took in the scenery. It was a little grey that day, but relatively warm so it proved a pretty good temperature for a wee cycle!2015-05-25 15.24.08There was so much wildlife around too; swans, ducks, geese, even herons.2015-05-25 14.45.47

(We even spotted a couple of pugs by the time we got down to Kensington High Street, I could barely contain myself to be honest!)2015-05-25 15.41.13
