There is an amazing vibe in London today. The streets are deathly quiet as people stay at home to watch tv, go to parks to watch big screens, or for the lucky few, attend the Olympic venues to witness incredible performances from the British team. As we live in the East End of London, we decided to take our summer holidays over the two Olympic weeks. We spent a small fortune on tickets and crammed the family together in our little flat. I’m so glad we did. It’s been amazing so far and we have a week still to go.
I love to cycle. I call it urban surfing. Each day I cycle into work, which isn't far. But I also pedal back and forward from my office in Raw Television to the edit suites at Envy. It's about twenty minutes of hardcore urban cycling through the centre of London and it's joyous weaving. We are making another 13 part series of 'Banged Up Abroad' or 'Locked Up Abroad' as it's called in the US. It's a great series to produce. My crews get to work all over the world but I get to go urban surfing each day in London. I took this picture on my phone in the Lee Valley where the London Olympics are going to be held in 2012.
