Incredible how empty Westway was today. Lots of really good climbers in the evening.
Incredible also how many empty docking spots there were on Exhibition Road when yesterday there was none at all just half an hour earlier.
The bike that I picked was really noisy.
They’ve changed the layout on the Whitfield Street/Howland Street junction. It used to be a signalised junction, but it doesn’t seem like one anymore. And on Whitfield Street, they’ve put in a pedestrian island. One outcome is that cars and long vehicles on Howland Street that used to turn into the opposite lane when turning into Whitfield Street, now have to be very careful when turning to avoid crashing into the pedestrian island. It definitely slows down turning vehicles and makes it safer for cyclists and cars waiting on Whitfield Street.
Ladbroke Grove on Friday night – lots of teenagers hanging around street corners.
Portobello Road on Friday night – lots of people in pubs and clubs.
