just took a spin down to peckham, pick up some straps and spacers from wizzz works
honestly, the fact i can ride pretty much to the center of town without touching a major road amazes me for what is something so densely populated. just a little touch of segregated shared use and some purposeful pedestrianisation and you've turned a world city into a bike friendly place.
compared to manchesters approach of "skinny strip on side of big road", "shared use as in we put a bike sign occasionally but also here's a bollard every 200m" and "path where you will be mugged outside of working hours", seems to be quite intuitive. still bitter about their approach tbqh.
bikes nice, rides nice, and the chain is stretching out finally to fit the slightly worn cog. honestly lovely bike
now i finally have the right spacers/ straps for the bag and finishing touches in place, might take a few pictures in a park, is grenwhich park nice? looks quite big, can you ride a bike there?
