London - Hyde Park / Portobello marketAugust 22, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C
Glorious sunny up to 30° day (predicted rain for the next week) so, making the most of it, I rode a bike around Hyde Park. Turned out to be an excellent option because there are paved paths and it's almost flat, although you're restricted to just a few paths in the park. Also it's huge.
There were some big crowds in places but they certainly had space to spread out (some places were almost empty too). I always like parks in cities.
