Random London Fact of the Day
“TimeOut London” is an anagram of “Untold Emotion”. Whether that describes a typical day in their editorial office, we couldn’t possibly comment.

Good Cause of the Day
Wheels for Wellbeing is a great London charity that helps people with disabilities to get cycling. Even those who would find it difficult to cycle on roads can have a go, through regular off-road cycling sessions at venues like Croydon Sports Arena and Herne Hill Velodrome. They’ve got plenty of specially adapted bikes to cater for everyone. Check them out here, and consider making a donation. At the very least, give them a follow on Twitter @WfWnews. You can also vote for them in this Facebook charity poll, with the winning charity getting £150 of Zipcar vouchers to help with transport costs.

London Weather
Today, we’re eschewing the Met Office’s unreliable predictions in favour of this depiction by Megan, aged 6 (as sent in by her uncle Matt Cooper).  Megan forecasts a sunny day with clouds, rabbit and a superbly inked tree. Thanks Megan!
