The very same.  I quite like the idea of a hillclimb challenge - sounds like all it's good for.

Biff - we were there on Wednesday day as well, playing with the idea of Harold and William calling it all off because of it being wet underfoot ;D

A sensible sign for most of us as there is a heck of a drop off to the left but this is Danny MacAskill. All the same, he did go off to the left but in his own inimitable way, landing on two wheels and remaining on his bike.

When I lived in Leytonstone we used occasionally to get the Epping Forest cows wandering down the street, to general consternation.

I've been told that, before the cows here all went mad, cattle used to be grazed on Whipps Cross roundabout.  Trufax?

It wouldn't surprise me; I lived half a dozen streets south of the Whipps Cross Road.  I don't know if they can still use the cycle/pedestrian bridges across the N. Circular these days, though.

Yes. Epping Forest and the Wansted Flats are common land, and every year there were herds of cattle grazing, making walking back from the Fleece on dark night an interesting variant of Russian Roulette, it is why there are cattle grids on the entry points to the North Circ up by the Waterworks and A12 at the Green Man.

They used to wander the streets around here, munching on all the tasty flowers they could reach; leave your garden gate open at your peril. Greatest amusement was to be had as they would wander across the Aldersbrook Road, holding up drivers. Often, the uninitiated would sound their horns, which mostly had the effect of stopping Daisy in her tracks as she pondered what was making so much noise.

The twin effects of the mad cow fiasco and rustling put paid to the economics of it, so it stopped.
