A quick circuit of Richmond Park yesterday. Drivers very well-behaved; most cruising around the posted 20 MPH limit and just two cars went past me with well-judged, safe overtakes. In fact I think I overtook more cars than cars overtook me. One very 'hairy' near miss though: a cocker spaniel tore across my path missing my front tyre by inches. Owner nowhere to be seen. Time for one circuit was 21:12, not too bad for a windy day. I think I can probably get it below the 20-minute barrier on a still day if I take the 'guards off, get up early enough to miss the traffic (and the dogs) and give it some more gas down the hills.
