The Metropolitan Cathedral of Precious Blood


Also known as Westminster Cathedral this is the mother church of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. It is dedicated to the eucharist (the precious blood of the transubstantiation).

One of the rear lights of a hire bicycle is flashing in the foreground.  That would be the one I just returned. My first experience of these bicycles was not very positive: the bicycles themselves are cumbersome and slow. I also had a driver in a small old sports car undertake me and try to squeeze me out of his way.  Of course it was futile, as we were 20 metres from a traffic light. However when I complained he jumped out his car and threatened to hit me. He also complained that I was cycling in the middle of the lane (on a three lane road). Of course the traffic was heavy and when the lights changed to green I left him queuing while I pedalled on to my destination.

It’s middle of the road point-makers like him who make cyclists so angry about car drivers
