Here's some footage of my commute home on Friday featuring action from Canary Wharf, Embankment, NKR, Putney Bridge, Wimbledon Common and home edited in a hopefully entertaining way.

The Passenger

Hope you enjoy it.

    Excellent stuff Idle - our paths must cross occassionally as I ride Epsom to Holborn and back which is usually CS7 but sometimes Embankment/Putney Bridge too.

    Not sure I would fancy riding through the Blackfriars Underpass though!

    Safe riding.

    I did; thanks- in particular the soundtrack and the run along Parkside and Southside.
    Without wishing to turn it into a rant, do you need to pay greater attention in the suburban section than the City part?

    thanks guys. I would say that in the suburbs cars are less aware of cyclists than in London (including greater London). A markedly different approach once i get south of Morden

    I enjoyed it, and well played for showing the bad aspects of your riding as well as the good. Like the wrong way round the mini roundabout at 3:53. :D

    God I'm glad I don't have a commute like that, kudos to you London lot. What is the red thing on the top of your forks?

    It's a building tag which is required for the secure parking area (although they never seem to check it)
