    Witnesses told how the cyclist – who was not wearing fluorescent clothing – weaved in and out of traffic before springing from the pavement into the roadway.

    When we go touring, cycling kit gets worn twice before washing. I took three sets this year which made it easier and was handy because of the constant rain. With decent weather, 2 sets is totally doable.

    Which side you come up? French or Italian? We did the French side a few weeks ago. It was nice.

    DJ, you're right, I should, but I can't face the bother of it. Just having a rant instead.

    On my way to meet folk for a ride I'm going up hill on a one-way 20 mph road, too narrow to have someone pass so I'm in primary. Of course, this charming BMW driver SL62 OSJ can't wait 5 seconds until the road widens 20m ahead, so cue revving the engine and a beep. I just keep going but then he rolls his window down "you fucking gay boy. Get off the road you faggot, I'll kill you" so of course I have to stop to take his photo. I ask if he's really giving out homophobic abuse, call him a wanker then get on with my ride. The rest of it was windy but good (except I forgot to restart strava when we stopped to put jackets on #firstworldproblems).

    I had that for while at the dulwich sainsbury's. Every time going in or out there, but nowhere else. I thought it was the headphones plugged into my phone.

    You can still get the sleeper and they have the usual bike spots in the guard's van. If you go first class you get a whole cabin to yourself, but I suspect they wouldn't take too kindly to an un-bagged bike.
