Several hundred riders. Warm weather. Still no cycle police.
Usual confrontations with impatient drivers. Saw one cyclist rammed by a car but probably many more. They just can′t wait for the ride to pass and they sound their horns impatiently and try to nose in dangerously. At Piccadilly Circus two car cops gave a rider a fixed penalty notice for going through a red light. Haven′t they heard yet that CM is now a customarily held procession in law? At Hyde Park Corner a woman cop threatened a corker with arrest for obstructing the highway. There was a serious altercation in Oxford Street between some car occupants, who deliberately nosed into the ride, and riders. Allegedly a woman was punched. Anyway, this held up traffic for quite some time.
Several circuits of Parliament Square. A pleasant stop at Buckingham Palace where the ride with its loud music seems to be very well tolerated by the residents, unlike past experiences in the zone around Parliament. Finally a bike-high and sit-down on London Bridge.
