I mentioned in the previous blog post I am looking out for something cycle related things to do in London soon. Early in October I will be at a meeting in central London with time either side to amuse myself (with the joys of Flexi time).
I like the idea of interviewing someone for my blog, trying out something new…. but I can’t quite decide what to do. Other times when I’m in such a situation I have found myself in the wonderful National Portrait Gallery, or the Photographer’s Gallery but that’s a bit pretentious for me nowadays. A few weeks ago I was waiting to see someone in the Ministry of Justice and as I sat there in the lobby I couldn’t help but do a bit of “people watching” as my London based colleagues all came rushing in, waving their ID cards around at the security staff as they headed to the barriers. Some were in business clothes but wore running shoes and I think I even spotted one or two cycling shoes. These were mostly young and slim looking. Then there were those who just couldn’t care less and looked fine. And then there was another group who also couldn’t care less but should. These were walking heart attack candidates, some looking very flushed, hot, stressed, anxious and carrying a spare tyre or two.
So it’s a bit of a dilemma really, I’m just not sure what to do. Oh I should say I’ll be wearing a business suit, so probably not looking to have a sweaty test ride or anything like that.
I wonder, what should I do…….?
