I have been a Londoner all my life. In the past I have lived within a short walk of some of the famous touristy bits. Since meeting Mrs Orange I have lived a little further out but still well under 30 minutes on the tube from all the good stuff. I have always been interest in history and the history of London in particular and at university - you guessed in in London - I read history. Lately I have found cycling on one of my Brompton bicycles has helped.
You might have read some of the day rides that I been attending in which I have cycled around London on a particular theme: pubs, Monopoly and recently cats. You might also have read my own efforts with my Beatles locations ride. Armed with various maps, books on London walks and book about the history of London I have been working away on a few rides purely for my own interest.
I have been putting the finishing touches to:
- Roman London
- Notting Hill
- Holland Park to Kensington
- P G Wodehouse and Mayfair
