A day after London mayor ken Livingstone had mumbled some tabloid-pleasing nonsense about forcing cyclists to somehow fix number plates to their bikes, there was another big turn out for the London Critical Mass.
Once again, there was a vast turnout of cyclists all looking forward to relaxing, pollution free amble around the streets of London.
Critical Mass meets on the last Friday of every month, 6.30pm under Waterloo Bridge. See you there!
Here's our report.
