Those nice folk at The Gdn have decided to give bicycle blogging a go. Good stuff. First impressions are encouraging, if not a little self-centred around the North London Guardianista bicycling world of sustainable bikes and Boris bashing. But it’s all good stuff. Note also the trailing of a Gdn bicycling podcast. I wonder where they got that idea from? Imitation, flattery, etc.
Here’s a lovely little film capturing perfectly the essence and excitement building up to the annual Good Friday meet at Herne Hill Velodrome. Paced perfectly, you’re left with a sense of expectation before the first riders roll out. Shame then that the meeting was rained off.
There’s tough competition out there for m’Gdn friends in the world of bicycling blogs. The new entry at #23 in the ‘top 50 cycling blogs in the world’ is half decent. Blimey.
