Is there something depressing about Hampshire?
Just a question, as when I went for a cycle around Winchester/Romsey/King's Somborne, I rode past several cyclists, greeted them all, and was met with stony indifference. Apart from another roadie wearing a KOM jersey who gave me a cheery wave. I know if you're cycling eyeballs out, it's not always practical to acknowledge another rider, but if you're out on a sunday spin, let's be friendly! For the record, I'm not from Winchester, but I found the surrounding roads very cyclist friendly and the motorists were particularly accommadating, so I had a very enjoyable 30M ride.
