A 48hr tube strike forced me to ride my bike to work this morning, my first cycle commute since last July. It was brilliant to be back on the bike. And especially brilliant to see the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment crossing Hyde Park Corner — there must have been 50 horses in this line, half of which did not have a rider on board — heading towards Hyde Park Barracks in Knightsbridge at about 8am.
I used to see this sight quite regularly in the summer, but usually as I was whizzing by and with no time to take a photograph. But for once I was in a good position to fire off a quick snap — and am delighted I did so!
