London Police Boxes
Earlier this week I visited some of London’s remaining police call boxes. I took some photos and dug into the history a little, the result of which you can find here:

Piano project: Sound and Vision
This is the first song I’ve recorded on this year’s project of converting an old upright piano into a electric piano / recording studio. The video shows some pictures of the process. If you want me to make you one let me know 😛
London cats bike ride
I organised a bike tour to visit a number of London’s notable cats. Eleven Brompton riders came, and we snaked our way all over London, fighting Saturday crowds and traffic.
I’ve written up some notes on the ride and cats here: London cats bike ride
I did 100 km of Swains Lane loop – which turned out to be 41 ascents (Mont Ventoux is the equivalent of 24 ascents). This earned me a 2015 ‘King of the Mountain’ award for Swains Lane which I’m quite proud of. I will buy a red polkadot mug to celebrate in due course 🙂
I cycled from Otford to Whitstable on a very enjoyable London Brompton Club ride. The bike got muddy, but I’m ok with that 🙂
I got to commute in the snow 🙂
The rear rim failed on Brompton, I discovered this *after* I rode to Windsor, did a sportive and rode back. Whilst I was waiting for the new rim to be delivered, the Condor got a bit of use.
The advantage of living on a big hill is training rides look cool:
I discovered the local chip shop serves excellent recovery food. It’s all healthy stuff, honest.
I took a nice trip to explore South London cycle routes 20 and 21.
Though I went off-piste a bit and found myself deep in mud.
The Condor handled it beautifully but needed a bath as soon as we got in.
