No, too far for me unfortunately... it's a shame this isn't a national thing and every town/city had their own, starting all at the same time. It might help a bit with global warming too :D
WARNING! Some slogans on the merchandise may cause offence.

Fantastic turnout today, I'm sure there were many more than in previous years.
Finished off with an hour in Camden Town and a chilly ride home.

Aaron,
I must have been near you, that's Serena Chamberlain from the Red Kites on the green Vespa me thinks, on my friends list.

Yep the Modfather put on some music and display of scoots. He makes more from the rich tourists than from skint scooterists I think lol
