Today was Scoot The Thames, an annual London ride out for vintage scooters. It began by Aldgate and criss-crossed Old Father Thames across his bridges - Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, Westminster Bridge – before ending over Waterloo Bridge on Lower Marsh Street for tea and biscuits.

With the sun blazing there must’ve been a couple of hundred Lambrettas and Vespas stopping traffic and causing a spectacle for the general public. As always it’s difficult to take snaps that capture the scale of the event or even the sights. Unfortunately it's not easy to flip the camera out the pocket as zipping over Tower Bridge on an SX150 (although I did try) but here’s a little collection to give a small snapshot of the day.

Many thanks to the organisers, marshals and everybody who took part. See you next year.
