@RBteachy We drove past you with her and couldn't actually believe what we saw!!
@binstedman At 74 she deserves a bravery medal
@mrbubbaman should be given a medal, if I'm still cycling at 74 I will probably have had my back and hips replaced!
@Stealth72 lanes, when you can find a good one, are only designed to be ridden at 12mph. I'm mostly doing about 20mph.
@TreacleToo Good for her. Hope I'm that 'f*** you' when I'm 74.
@bike3isavolvo Strewth. But might the hard shoulder of the M25 struck her as safer than the alternative?
@parimalkumar if I had to choose, I'd take the hard shoulder of M25 for cycling over taking the lane on A3 any day.
