The Winds of Change

I was cycling to work this morning through very thick sea mist. The ‘March winds’ have not really materialised here on the South Coast. The winds of change are definitely picking up however. At the beginning of March, I went to Portcullis House to represent the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain at the Labour CyclingContinue reading “The Winds of Change”

Remembrance

Today is Armistice Day in the United Kingdom. On Sunday it will be marked, as always, with a march past the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London and at Memorial services across the land remembering those that have gallantly given their lives in serving their countries.

Go for Launch

All the Fun of the Fair

Apologies that it’s been a while since I last posted but things have been very, very busy at Lo Fidelity Towers. The Boy has teeth pushing through with a vengeance which is bad enough for the poor little mite but they’re also deciding to make their push every morning between 2.30 and 4.30am. As a result, I look asContinue reading “All the Fun of the Fair”

London Cycle Superhighways

Two of the London Cycle Superhighways opened at the beginning of the week to a guarded response. Obviously a scheme like this (which cost £23million in total) is going to invoke a broad spectrum of emotions. For the purposes of this blog post, any reference to these new routes will focus on CS7 which runsContinue reading “London Cycle Superhighways”
