Basingstoke Victory Roundabout

Victory Roundabout in Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK

Hope you enjoy my short video filmed at Basingstoke Victory Roundabout.

Video is on YouTube (HERE).

To misquote the lyrics from a popular song…

Cycling down Alencon Link, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of carbon gas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw Victory roundabout
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to go down and up
There it stood in the pathway;
I saw the blue cycle sign
And I was thinking to myself,
“This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
Then it lit up a tunnel and it showed me the way
There were cyclists down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say…

Cycle into the Basingstoke Victory,
Such a roundabout (Such a roundabout),
Such a round route,
They confusin’ it up at the Basingstoke Victory,
What a poor surprise (what a poor surprise)
Bring your alibis

Blue signs on the pathway,
The bicycle parked up
And they read “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
And in the mayor’s chambers,
They gathered for the laugh
They plan it with their school compass,
But they just can’t stop the bike

Last thing I remember, I was
Cycling over grass
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax, ” said the highways man,
“We are programmed to deceive.
You can walk out any time you like,
But you can never ride!”
