My destination, the Dulwich Gallery, is easy to find but the sign saying Dulwich Village tempts me with promises of cafes, and the reality does not fail to satisfy. This is my sort of place, a tiny shopping street with lots of trees and not much traffic and some interesting little shops including a branch of Gail's Artisan Bakery, which I discovered near Clapham yesterday.
About Gail's, there are some recipes on their website, and they have a book out that looks great too. Check out some of the breads available, all made with sourdough starters.
Back to the gallery. Nearby is one of the oldest buildings in Dulwich, the original Dulwich College for Boys.
I got my lefts and rights mixed up again and rode up to Crystal Palace when I really wanted to go to the Horniman Museum.
There are views of the city from the gardens.
Cycling is such a pleasant way to explore and to feed my addiction.
