  1. Off to Scotland for a week – largely incommunicado.

  2. I like the way this conveys the dilemma of cycling in a big city, by the almost total enclosure formed by the cars, yet leaves a totally clear view of the subject.

    I hope you enjoy/enjoyed Scotland.

  3. Not my kind of bike riding I must admit. I won’t ride anywhere without a helmet and car drivers attempt to kill me enough with me trying to avoid them in the country lanes so going into the ‘viper’s nest’ on a bike isn’t for me. I did the L2B, 88km in 5:06hrs with a max speed of 75km/h off Ditchling Beacon.
    The image does convey the frailty of a cyclist in London.

    • helmet woon’t do much if in a collisioon with a car, at least you get a choice to wear or not to wear. I find when I don’t wear one I take less risks.
      75kmph, I have not gone that fast in many years.

  4. plenty going on here, movement implied everywhere. I don’t understand why the car on the bottom right is facing that direction on the right hand side of the road, is that illegal parking?
    Sitting upright is the best way to be in traffic, see and be seen. I see a slight lean on the bike rider so she quite possibly shot around that corner at a decent pace.
