I'm quite new to London and have really been enjoying Richmond park, particularly as it's slightly safer than the roads around here (Ealing).

Even after a few months of cycling around it I'm still seeing vast improvements in my times, and with varying weather and obstacles (cars and deer) - I just don't seem to be getting bored of it.

Maybe I'm easily pleased though.. :shock:

not at all. Cyclists are very discerning. Your happiness is a result of cycling induced endorphins...b

I don't understand. the OP had a reply less than 12 hours after posting. Maybe the first people who looked at it aren't Londoners.

Sweep and others are complaining that the OP hasn't acknowledged all the helpful replies s/he has had. I think they are justified - the OP asked for info and advice on 28 March at 10.03pm, but last visited at 10.49pm on the same date! :shock:

oh. of course :) There were a couple of posts further up that no one had replied to the OP, so I read the others in the same vein :oops:
