Favourite Photo's from London to Paris 2012

There were some fantastic photographers on the London to Paris ride and a good couple of thousand photo's were made available to the riders, without charge.  There were so many, I had a look through and have picked some that stood out for me.

Let me credit the photographers firstly for some awesome shots, Matthew Alexander and Karin Schermbrucker are responsible for most of these excellent images (with the odd one or two from my Blackberry), so a big thanks for making them available.

Here's some of my favourites: -
