We have all seen the pictures and the media ridicule. But us the Mound really that silly – or is it just reporters being horrid to Westminster Council (unlikely?). Here is your chance to decide for yourself. The Mound is free at the moment. Ride Leader Philippa did this ride with another group – see photos at https://www.facebook.com/philippa.goffe
