Francisco Alomar

image

This is the statue in the town of Sineu of Majorcan cyclist Francisco Alomar, who was killed by a driver on 9th August 1955.

I found a brief description of the statue here which gives some background about Alomar.

Kamel’s halaal butchery

image

An interesting piece, in which the graffiti tags seem to be intentionally incorporated into the design of Kamel’s delivery vehicle.

Versailles

image

During 2017 I visited Versailles twice. The first time was on my Easter ride from home to Paris and back, and the second was on 1st November when I rode from Nanterre to the Forest of the King Marly. This photo was taken on the second visit.

Oxford Street

This an interesting short documentary on the history and future of Oxford Street, London. I think it illustrates the stupidity of many city streets where we dedicate 30% of space to 60% of road users. It also highlights the problem of sending vast numbers of busses (near-empty at most times) down a busy shopping street.

Street furniture

image

Camden Council seems to have taken the concept of street furniture quite literally on Byng Place outside the Church of Christ the King.

A dark start to the morning, despite the clocks having gone back on Sunday.
