The Psychopath Survey

I decided to do a random survey along this stretch of country road to see if I could determine what percentage of drivers are psychopaths.  I know that my methodology is not scientific and the sample size is small but the results suggest that we need to investigate this risk more carefully.

London Recruits

Pleased that this project was funded on the KickStarter fundraising community site and looking forward to seeing this movie when it comes out.

That’s me in the spotlight

So on Saturday I did a cycle ride, the Hills and Mills audax. (The map here is from someone else’s ride in 2009, so probably not exactly the same route). After a near three week break in cycling (due to travel) I felt there were too many hills and too few mills. At 2000 metres of elevation, the ride was a personal record, although I went slowly due to the hills and the flooded/wet roads.

Anyway, today I found out that a couple on a tandem, doing a different ride and passing us in the opposite direction, filmed us.  I’m the rider at 4 minutes 7 seconds in.

Snow today

There was an absence of snow in the Alps this season (and last) but fortunately I am at the European resort with the third most snow. It’s just pretty cold, and in the morning it was foggy on the mountain.

FN09WPF - Driver nearly knocks me over

In the new year I would quite like to not have to deal with idiots on the road. Unfortunately it doesn’t translate into a resolution that I can make. This driver was very apologetic (too apologetic perhaps?) but I don’t understand how he failed to see me in the first place. I was lit up like a Christmas tree. My impression was that he was driving like a typical London driver - inconsiderately, and trying to force his way through. On reflection, looking at the video, I think he failed to slow down and take due care at the junction where he was supposed to give way.

GV08EBP - Punishment Pass

If you are frustrated at not being able to overtake, on a windy road with oncoming traffic .... why be an arsehole and take it out on me?

Two more sleeps

So it’s just three more sleeps until the days here start to get longer again.  Although the days are so short and brutal, I am able to think back to sunnier and happier times in August, when we cycled around the Netherlands.

Remembering when I was laying on the ground outside the TFL headquarters on 15th November 2015.
