Cycling news has been overshadowed this week by two crashes to famous cyclists – first Bradley Wiggins knocked over by a van, then Shane Sutton in an accident on the A6. I can’t think of much to add apart from I hope cyclists get better, and I hope people become inspired to take more care when using the roads – Cycling is still relatively safe, but it could still be much safer. (how dangerous is cycling?). However, standing around in Oxford, I saw no accidents and just one near miss – and that was a white van driving around a parked bicycle with 1 cm to spare.
Joining Magdalen roundabout. Potentially dangerous as there are several turn offs. The chalk writing on the side of the road says ‘Google know where you live’ – a play by some local actors.
Orange does stand out more than dark green.
It’s great when there is a cycle path to get through congestion.

Moped and push bike. Looks like a Pashley.
