Cyclist in London

image

On Thursday I was working in London, and was tempted to cycle across to my meeting (rather than take the bus or tube). It was a lovely day but I realised I would get too hot and sweaty in my work clothes. I was therefore jealous when I saw so many people out on their bicycles: cycling is definitely the fastest way around London and it is more comfortable than either the tube or bus (provided you are dressed more appropriately than I was).

Too important to slow down and pass safely?

Poor quality pass of me, and I then witnessed a dangerous overtake of the cyclist and jogger ahead of me. Besides for endangering us, he of course also endangered the family in the oncoming car (the driver of which hooted at him).

Marechal Foch

image

Almost every town in France has a street named after Marshall Ferdinand Foch and London has this statue in Grovesner Gardwns, Victoria.

95% peanuts

image

It’s a pity: I like my peanuts to be pure, 100% peanuts.

Was this a “Punishment Pass”?

This driver waited until the oncoming lane was clear of traffic, but then passed me very closely without even crossing the centre line! I had a feeling that he was trying to make a point here. The next driver behind him was very patient and held well back, so I have kept the video running to show this.  Perhaps the first driver is not familiar with Rule 163 of the Highway Code, or was he trying to teach me something?

Rain shower

image

Cycling home from Riverhead in West Kent this afternoon I spotted this rain shower on the horizon.  The shower was over very quickly: within two minutes the rain (seen here falling from a cloud) had stopped.

GP53CNO - Phoning and Driving

image

You were driving fast and didn’t bother to slow down when passing me on a narrow road. I guess your phone call is more important than our lives?
