during this mornings commute in the dark, on a cyclepath, spotted my next victim a cyclist ahead of me without lights dressed in black. telling him to get some lights felt a bit too self righteous after being told the very same thing least week when my front light battery died. opted instead to accelerate part him as fast and close as possible. was then that I noticed he was wearing headphones so made sure to give my bicycle horn some extra hard squeezes to make sure he'd hear it. look on his face was most amusing I must say Big Grin

Endangering another cyclist is reckless and nothing to boast about. Fucktard.

It's got a good rhythm that matches my cadence.

It does sound pretty awesome doing the odd cross country commute. I commute 2-3 times a week from Faversham to Canterbury on a road bike by going past Mount Ephraim and up Dawes Hill which is a great way to start the day. I then often come home via Selling but I would like to mix it up a bit more. Does anyone have any suggestions on good "cross country" route to commute MTB Ferversham to Canterbury? I am going to start trying to work one out myself but if anyone already has it nailed that would be cool.

You could go off road or along country lanes from Faversham and then come into Blean woods at Boughton or dargate.  From there you could take some singletrack or the fire roads through Blean woods all the way up the uni in Canterbury
