    Anyone here ?

    Very busy, parked at City's grounds. Just done a lap with the family. Sat outside the velodrome as the kids and wife have gone inside to look around.

    Ah! That might explain the family in a car with three bikes on the back (two adult, one kid) who stopped outside the house today to check the tightness of the carrier straps.

    We bet they wished they hadn't turned into a cobbled road to do it though! They turned round very carefully!

    I've done a couple of the Leicester Sky Rides, and TBH, found the vast number of wobbly people all over the road scarier than riding with motor traffic! But they do seem to be fun for families and beginners.

    Went well, was very busy, but there seemed to be less idiots trying to blast round. Only saw 3 lads riding stupidly out of the 1000's.

    Had photo taken by Key103, so should be up today/tomorrow.

    Just had a "thank you" text from Sky saying there were 21,000 riders

    Thought it was a tad busy

    Will say it is great if riding with kids. My daughter isn't ready for roads, too wobbly, but we couldn't take the tag-a-long today as it's in Wales at the out-laws caravan. So she rode, and did well.

    Some tiny kids on balance bikes - fantastic, and they really were doing well.
