13/04/2014 Olympic Park, East London

The London Marathon took over Blackheath today, hence the change of venue.
 
The field to the west of the River Lea and the Velodrome is in the shadow of the media building but clear of obstructions in other directions.  As luck would have it the NW breeze today was affected by thermals as well as the building so occasionally we were well and truly becalmed or subject to rolling turbulence and down draft which is not good when flying four line kites…
 
That being said we had a relaxed couple of hours flying ahead of the events in the next few weeks.
 
We will be at Berck Friday 18th – Sunday 20th April then at Cervia Thursday 24th April – Thursday 1st May and finally at Weymouth Saturday 3rd – Monday 5th May.
 
I may decide to join Jacob’s SE London Cycle Group for a ride on Sunday 11th May which will be a c50 Mile ride for me just to keep in practice.  I may be tempted to do the Dunwich Dynamo again this year…  <grins>
