Was in London this past weekend and was so surprised to see how cycling has changed in the capital. When I lived there I commuted from muswell hill in the north to the BBC in White city – an 11 mile blast across hampstead Heath and down through st johns wood and notting hill. Took 30 mins and I was luckily fast enough to stay out of trouble… Now there are hundreds of cyclists and all car drivers are so aware of other people on the road. Even the taxi driver on the the 10min ride to Euston had no complaints and he gave them loads of room. Now that I am getting a brompton was more aware of all the folding bikes and saw 20 on that ride alone….
