    Regarding the fucking appalling level of driving on the streets of London at the moment, this was a message from a mate yesterday...

    "I was cycling up archway on my own this morning at about 10kph and a bloke drove straight into me from a side road and dragged me about 6 ft under the front of his car. No idea how I'm not dead to be honest. I thought he was trying to kill me but was just distracted by everything that is going on. So hopefully my lesson will help some of you making decisions about going out for the time. I'll certainly be on the turbo for the time being once I recover. Be safe out there"

    Anyone know the legality of a completely unmarked/covert police motorcycle blasting through a major junction on a red light?

    Southbound at Seven Sisters this morning I was on a green heading from Broad Lane to Seven Sisters Road when 2 unmarked police cars with lights and sirens passed through the junction on a red. Obviously I could see/hear them and gave way before moving off across the junction and turning left but staying in the right hand lane.

    Approx 20 metres behind them was a motorbike that I assumed would stop at the lights, but instead opened up the throttle to tail the 2 cars and nearly wiped me out in the process. Rider slowed down, flipped up his visor and informed me he was police.

    Absolutely no lights/sirens/marking/uniform/hi-viz/etc­

    I'm flying to Madrid then taking a train, which seems to be the cheapest option

    Selling my 2018 Pine Mountain, size large. Pretty much specced as the link below, with the exception of tyres- it'll come with 1 set of WTB Ranger (2.8) and a brand new set of WTB Trail Boss (2.65) mounted and set up tubeless.

    Perfect starter/intermediate MTB for ripping around Epping, Swinley and bikepacking adventures. Good used condition but everything works as it should and it's comfortable, versatile and super fun to ride.

    Viewings/test rides from either Walthamstow (Blackhorse Road) or Camden
