No, not the fantasy F1 site.
Cycling in yesterday morning I was halfway through my Monday commute at about 11 and was descending from the ridgeway towards Upton. On a quietroadisnsed something to my right and looked down to see an adult badger blasting along and looking sideways at me.
It didn’tseem too spooked and when I braked to avoid out pacingit, it burst out a bit more speed and veeredacrossme into the hedge. Brilliant start to the day.
Of course over the years this story will be embellished to include it trying to ambush me with a knife for the contents of my Camelback
Just got back from a nightride, where a badger ran across the trail in front of us and collided with a tree stump. It made a hell of a thud, but carried on running. Poor little fella. ( or lass, I didn’t ask)
