Out beyond the Thames Barrier flood defences looking back at London. The decaying old.boat on the left is the Roytl Iris, one of the 2 ferries across the Mersey river in Liverpool. In fact last weekend 62 years ago back in Liverpool before they became huge the Beatles performed as part of The Cavern's Riverboat Shuffle cruises on board the Royal Iris which was known as the fish and chip boat thanks to its onboard fish and chip saloon. It was taken out of cross Mersey service in the early 1990s and was sold to a consortium and who planned to turn it into a floating nightclub and restaurant but this never happened. It went to Cardiff in South Wales where it was hoped it could be a club/restaurant in the docks there but the council refused permission, and in 2002 it was towed to here in Woolwich London in the hope of getting a refit and mooring as nightclub and restaurant here. This never happened and sadly it's just been rotting away here since.

Last night. Ride from my house to a mild workout ride. I have not ridden the Lemond in 9 months and that was a rarity. I added all my lights, so I was a disco party! 22 miles mild elevation gain.

[ last day of 57yr old for me ]
