Seaside Safaris with Transport Titilation

If you aren’t doing anything on Saturday 18th August, why not pop down to the South Coast of England as I’ve decided to lead a Seaside infrastructure Safari and you’re all welcome. Yes, even you.

Old Shoreham Road

Well, the construction work has finally come to a close on Old Shoreham Road. Firstly, to remind you of the scheme, here are the consultation plans for the eastern end (BHASVIC means Brighton & Hove Sixth Form College) ..and the western end …and the two posts I wrote during the construction period are here andContinue reading “Old Shoreham Road”

West Sussex County Council Gets It Kind of Right. Accidentally.

A little while ago, I wrote this post on the National Cycle Network Route 2 between Worthing & Brighton. More specifically, this point where the approach to a junction opens out to 3 lanes heading westbound into Worthing on a 30mph road, perfect for putting your foot down, sticking your finger up to ‘the man’ (or ‘society’ as IContinue reading “West Sussex County Council Gets It Kind of Right. Accidentally.”

Scenes From My Commute

I was cycling my merry way home this evening as I usually do along the seafront from Brighton to Worthing. The Sturmey Archer 3 speed was ticking away like a pacemaker made for Bez from Happy Mondays and the sea breeze was slowly caressing my slowly dwindling hair. Just outside Worthing on the edge of LancingContinue reading “Scenes From My Commute”

Work in Progress

This week has been a real reward for those of us that ride our bicycles through all seasons. The clocks went forward to usher in British Summertime meaning no need for lights anymore and we had the sort of sunshine and warmth that made you insane if you weren’t on a bicycle. Continuing on fromContinue reading “Work in Progress”

Brighton Rock

A little while ago, I went for a lunchtime stroll with the always cheery and knowledgable Mark Strong (Professional transport Consultant who tweets at @ibikebrighton). My day job is just round the corner from a new cycle path being constructed in Brighton & Hove and, being unashamed cycle infrastructure nerds, we decided to check it out (I’m goingContinue reading “Brighton Rock”

Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea

When most people think of Worthing, they probably think of the seaside, the elderly, bowls and the place where Oscar Wilde wrote ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’. I moved here in 2007 and since then I’ve changed jobs once, moved house twice, got married and now have a beautiful [if loud] baby boy, trained asContinue reading “Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea”

Weekly Round Up & Dutch Lunch

Well, things seem to be going slowly but tickety-boo at the Embassy. The response has been wonderful.  From an idea that started out last week, we are now at this stage: Website up and, now I’ve been told how to confirm peoples accounts (I thought I knew computers. I was wrong), all people that haveContinue reading “Weekly Round Up & Dutch Lunch”
