View from Box Hill

image

At this stage in my ride today I had climbed both Leith Hill and Box Hill (for the first time). I was pleased to discover that neither of them are the most difficult climb I have done this year (by a long way). Leith Hill is the longer and more challenging of the two, and it comes first in the Ride London Surrey 100 race that I am doing next weekend.

A lost question

image

Someone left this Post It note on the road. I hope that they found the answer to their question, which is something used in the visual design of a Web project.

Orford Castle

image

Unfortunately I was just passing through, and didn’t get a chance to look around.  The tower keep is polygonal, probably based on a Byzantine design. It was built between 1165 and 1173 by Henry II of England to consolidate royal power in the region, according to Wikipedia.

Crop Circles

These aliens have exhibited complete disrespect for human intelligence and culture. My guess is that they must have made contact with a local resident before leaving this advanced communication in the Suffolk wheat field. Either that or this was the work of teenage prankster aliens.

Showdown at the Oxted Corral

Showdown at high noon yesterday (well actually 7 pm yesterday) - I stopped, and the driver stopped.  I indicated with my hand that I was going straight ahead, and that she must return to her lane.  She complied: showdown over!

Another near miss

Here’s one that I was oblivious to at the time. Fortunately the driver pulled out of the attempted overtake which was badly timed, and lacked foresight.

Road Rage on the Dunwich Dynamo

We’ve all seen it before: cyclists, five or six abreast, blocking the public highway…
