    A Sunday in Hell One of, if the not the best.

    The Collective and Roam are also worth a watch both are MTB but not full of fast cuts, heavy metal and endless jumping.

    lol @ Tynan - they are a nice waste of time spent tutting and cringing... but addictive all the same..

    no tutting from me, I think they're superb

    there is one bit in the London that makes me shut my eyes every single time and perhaps a couple in the NY one

    I think they're brill, end of
     
  6. Hollentour/Hell on Wheels yes, Overcoming no.
     
  7. If we go on YouTube, descending Mont Ventoux or an Alpine Pass or something, certainly not cutting-up traffic and pedestrians in a city.

    That's depressing, not inspiring.

    whatever
     
  9. No, I don't mean it from a tut-tut-how-terrible point of view, I mean that to me cycling round a busy city, let alone taking chances through one is just depressing.

    Give me an Alpine descent, dry road, sunny day...

    I enjoy cycling in London, even at my humble pace and style

    It's not an either or choice, they can both be exciting

    Racing along the embankment on a sunny day through the tunnel and leaving the cars behind in long lines has its own alure.
