Over the weekend, I cycled from Chelsea to Fulham to try the swimming pool at Virgin Active. Recently, I’d joined Chelsea’s gym but with the membership you can also visit Fulham’s (which has a much bigger pool and plays music).
Instead of cycling over Stamford Bridge and towards Fulham Broadway or along Old Brompton Road, I cycled along Fulham Road and cut through Brompton Cemetery.
As a result, I avoided two roundabouts by Fulham Broadway as well as the traffic that comes down from Earls Court when you take the other route. I love this shortcut. You can see a hint of Stamford Bridge but other than that you feel a million miles from any high street. Nice and chilled.
