October is coming to an end, the 5pm darkness will arrive next week…
Speed Run – 39.6 MPH Top Speed – So I finished putting together my winter bike during this week. I’ve built up a late 80’s / early 90’s British Eagle with a nice selection of old parts. I was taking it out for a test ride and decided to see how fast I could go down Hopwas Hill even with the mudguards. That top speed would get you points / fine in a car…
You’re Not That Mini – With the potholes in my path the overtake just felt a bit close / rushed… even though it probably doesn’t look it on camera.
Left It Late – Looks like it was a 3 way stand off up until that lad decided to pull out…just before I got there. Left it quite late there lad.
Keep On Riding – I hope I’m still riding when I’m this gents age. Keep those legs spinning! I wouldn’t personally choose to ride an old shopper on the road though without a lid… To slow for my liking.
Behind The Scenes – If you haven’t already seen it, check out my review of the See Sense V2 lights. https://youtu.be/dr9yR6gnSlQ They’re some decent lights. Purely for “warning” though, they’d be no good for actually lighting a dark road so you can safely see.
The Mating Call Of A Wild BMW Driver – “Wahey, Sound Man, it looks good” or at least I think that’s what I hear. I was on Grandpa’s bike…and that’s one good looking bike!
IDGAF – Yehhhh…. Lights turn to green so that means pedestrians cross right? #swag #yolo #myhaircutwasdowntoabet
Unresponsive? – BX59KKA – Sign is switched to green, vehicles in front move off but the lorry is still sat there. Why? Yup you’ve guessed it, the guy is on his phone. The camera never sees things as well as your eyes but as he drove off he still had the phone in his hands.
Thanks to Ryan Little again for providing the free music
Stay tuned for the next episode where someone actually hits me with their car…
