London Marathon. It's all tarmac and buildings. Blooming awful it is :-(

Probably not the finish of the VLM but what do BBC viewers see? Greenwich Park, Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, Tower Hill, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and The Mall. Funny that they don't show off Charlton, Rotherhithe, Bermondsey, Isle of Dogs and the East End. Roughly 6-8 miles of London landmarks and 18 miles you'd rather wasn't there.

I must admit that I don't notice the bad bits as I'm more concerned about not tripping up as it's too congested.

Got something to say?
