@drrachelhewitt We're all so sick of this. Every woman cyclist or jogger has a story of being run off the road by blokes whose excuse is that they're "having fun" when in truth they're punishing woman for daring to move around. Sorry this happened to you on what sounds like a momentous day!
So anyway (thread). Today’s the London elections. There’s not much point in voting for anyone but S Khan for mayor. But then I thought - this is a local election, and what matters to me? And round here?
ANYWAY, if you want to hear me full of fury about similar b***ard men abusing women in public a hundred odd years ago - and the ways that women fought back - have a listen to this short prog I made for @BBCRadio3 on repeating patterns in street harassment https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000vk7s
In the queue to be vaccinated but excitement totally dampened by the car full of men who tried to ram me off the road while I was cycling here, honking & whistling at me in the pouring rain, and following me into the vaccination centre car park. Now in queue fighting back tears.
Restored, repaired, repainted, rebalanced and now turning again,it’s a labour of love keeping the history of Low Mill going but is great to see the wheel in action once more just as it was back in the 18c 😎
