I’m on one of my stupid length rides today. The route takes me from Upham to London and back. Every year I try to get a few of these in, every year the riding standards from some I see increasingly mortify me. Today set the bar to a new level. I was riding up towards Putney Bridge, from RP, and a guy ( wearing a Ride London jersey) came along the left of a panel van, into a closing gap, the panel van was indicating left, I saw it, he didn’t, how the hell he didn’t end up under the wheels is beyond me:eek:. That was properly stupid.

What's with the BSO's along the North Embankment today. Thousands of them, most pulling wheelies riding through traffic coming towards them. Had police clearing the road in front of them and cycling with them. Just seen a large group doing the same up Whitehall.

Unfortunate you see this a lot around here, I'm always amazed at people who have bikes into the multi thousands that wear black and don't bother with lights, jump red lights ,over take up the inside of large vehicles, at least the none cyclist ,cyclists stick to the foot paths. It makes us all look like pillocks !

Protest against Trump? The Mall was all messed up today with Guardsmen in full kit, I have no idea what it was, but it cost me a lot of time. I’ll let them off, it’s quintessentially British.

I was wearing black this morning when I went for a ride, and without lights.

What is wrong with what I wear ? And it was broad daylight, so what was the point of using lights ???

Black shows up well in daylight.
And under street lights against an illuminated road.

I just wondered who the thousands of twonks were cycling, with police escort, along the North Embankment. Mostly teenage lads. They were pulling wheelies swerving in and out of traffic coming towards them, on the wrong side of the road.

Possibly the British BMX team. That’s what they do.

I'm at the other end of the country, but read somewhere there was a demonstration in connection with knife crime in London, there was an aerial pic of cyclists doing wheelies on a bridge.

It was all completely messed up in central London today. It caused me some issues that ended up with me abandoning a long ride. That really did not impress me.

Waiting for our train at Euston we saw several freestyle type bikes and riders waiting for trains north and during the day there did seem to be an unusual number of roads closed in that Laandon.
