A grey day...

It seems like we had our summer in June. But having ridden through last winter, the worst one in a generation, a bit of grey damp weather ain't a problem.

I felt a bit stonger this morning, which was nice after yesterday's crappy form, and I bowled in on the City Centre route. Nothing at all to report other than a Belgique HGV passing a tad too close than was comfortable. But hey, I'm still here!

Oh, and every flinkin' blippin' traffic light was on red! Grrr!

Yesterday's pedal home was the usual affair, other than I must mention a very nice car driver who stayed behind me all the way through Harbourne rather than squeeze an overtake in. He passed me when he could use the other lane completely. He got a thumbs up and a wave from me. Top bloke. I overtook him again at the main junction I filter through at Selly Oak. Which proves that forcing your way past bikes in town doesn't get you very far!

I'm including this video as an example of a pedestrian who doesn't look. Although it's not too clear in the video, she was was much closer to me than it looks and the expression of hatred, yes hatred, she gave me when I tried to pedal around her was something to behold!
