I spotted a criminal in East Surrey

Speeding is a criminal offence. If convicted, you are required to declare this to your insurance company for the next five years. You may also be required to declare this when making a job application, etc.
Unfortunately, certain sections of society normalise speeding, leading to people not understanding how serious it is.

“the effect of speeding is () severe. Government data lists breaking the speed limit as a factor in almost 220 road deaths a year, rising to 350 if you include travelling too fast for the conditions.

(Peter Walker)

PS - Perhaps you are wondering whether I was breaking the speed limit on my bicycle? If so, then read this article.

Indications of Autumn

Autumn colours have been introduced into our landscape. This photo of the hay harvest was taken a couple of days ago along the North Downs in West Kent.

Off into the night

Right, I’m off on the annual Dunwich Dynamo cycle ride - 180 km from London Fields to the sea at the lost medieval town of Dunwich in Suffolk.

Here’s the video I took of last year’s ride:

Last time I caught a coach back to London, then cycled across London and took the train home. It was an excruciatingly slow exercise. This time I am sleeping at Dunwich and will return home on Sunday night or Monday morning.

There’s a wonderful vibe today in the park.
