Nothing much else going on, on the approach to blackfriars ramp a range rover pulls level with me, he's going to turn left thinks I. On go the indicators, still level with me, got momentum so I up the speed and look straight through the passenger window with a "erm, really?" kind of look. Wave of apology from the driver, i drop back and move over into primary, no harm done. Caught the lights into the tunnel very nicely and was happily cruising in the mid 20's when a peppermint Bianchi appears in my peripheral vision. Now i like the sport as much as anyone but I really hate those peppermint Bianchi's. Summoned full power from the legs and made him work for it but he had the momentum, slotted in front of me which gave me enough clear air to slingshot back past. Felt very happy with my show of awesomeness, at which point he went past like his hair was on fire outside cyclesurgery. Horrible bit of road there and not really suitable for SCR so i let him have the win and took a tow all the way up the climb and he turned left after pizza express. Was hoping to continue that one once we got to the Highway.
That made me laugh out loud (mines black so I'm not offended )
