    Cyclist injured in Richmond Park

    The cyclist's injuries are said to be not life threatening which is good news and a bit of a miracle when you see the car. The damage is presumably from hitting the fence and bouncing around on the rough ground and maybe gravity gave it an extra push but that car looks quite thoroughly wrecked...

Bearing in mind that few, if any hand pumps have anything...

    When you see another cyclist, do you try and catch up to him or her?

    I’ve noticed quite a few guys be quite a bit behind me and then a short time later pass me quickly. From my observations, they have always been younger guys. Has anyone else experienced this situation?

    Why did the cyclist cross the road ?

    It's half day Friday so time to spend almost 4 hours playing in the woods. Today it was time to go beyond The Darkside and do a lot of climbing. Much to my surprise the horses have even gone beyond The Darkside. Looks like I just can't get far enough away from them, and will soon be dodging...

    BBC report. Incident happened on A81 near Balfron in Stirlingshire. Some utter lowlife in a Range Rover overtaking on a blind bend hit a cyclist and didn't bother stopping. Why is it that these clowns never seem to have head on collisions with a fully laden artic coming in the opposite...
