More fun on Tooley St. Is it acceptable to ride the wrong way (West) along the fenced-off single lane cycle path instead of waiting behind the backed up but gradually moving traffic? It's not as if there's nothing coming the other way, and it's not as if they don't mind sharing the space. Before this, I thought I was going to witness a crushing by a bus as a very impatient bloke jammed his way through the narrowest of gaps to get in front of a bus just as it was starting to move. The driver had to brake hard to prevent him from being guillotined.
Riding even more slowly than usual to avoid getting drenched with my own sweat. I wondered how the guy in the blue suit labouring away on the Boris Bike got on with his first few hours at his desk.
