- If London is the center of the universe . . .
- don simonMember
why would I want to go?
The art, the theatre, the museums, the bars, the shops, the people, the culture, the food, the concerts, the architecture, etc. etc. etc.
Get all those things 1,716kms from London a World Cup XC course 10 mins from the city centre and some great riding about an hour away. 😉Posted 9 years agoaracerSubscriber
Not nearly far enough compared to some on here (ie still in the same country, and we appear to be totally stuffed, largely down to those who do live there). 100 miles or so I suppose, which is at least far enough to have escaped the pull of the black hole.
In case it matters (it doesn’t) I have lived there for substantial periods, so feel reasonably well informed to comment.Posted 9 years ago
Nope, I’m heterosexual.
We have those.
Thanks to the internet I haven’t been to a shop since 2005.
We have those, but we don’t jam them into sweaty cattle cars.
See first response.
Yeah, got that too.
Yep, got those.
We have better.Posted 9 years ago
One thing I’ll say about London; people tend to be a lot more open minded than 5thelefant. A lot more tolerant of diversity and alternative views/lifestyles.
Fortunately, there are other towns and cities, where the ignorant, bigoted and narrow-minded can stay, so we don’t have to put up with them…Posted 9 years agocurtisthecatSubscriber
I live on the very outer northern edges of the M25 and although its not strictly London I consider London to be my town. All of our socializing and leisure time and work is spent in town. I always think that the further you go out of large cities the less open minded people tend to be. 30 miles out seems like it is 30 years back with peoples attitudes.

Londons ace, theres more to life than biking and everything else I could want is here. The only drawback is that I have to drive 25 miles to get to good biking, but that can be said of most urban areas I suppose.
London has the best of those thing CFH has listed above, and contrary to popular belief people do actually talk to their neighbours, I know all mine really well and a guy who posts on here lives in the street too, certainly more friendly than anywhere I lived in West Yorkshire.Posted 9 years ago
So what did I say that was intolerant?
Nope, I’m heterosexual.
Care to elaborate?
Sorry, I might be missing something here, but as a heterosexual person, I thoroughly enjoy the arts, thatre, etc. As do millions of other people, regardless of sexuality.
It’s probably because I’m thick and stupid, that I can’t understand your points.
Anyway, sounds like you have everything you need, where you are, so you therefore have no need to come here!
Everybody’s a winner…
