Goodies

June 23rd, 2006 · Comments Off on Goodies · Life

I was really kicking myself yesterday. I was out the front of the office, and a bloke cycled past on a 3-seater bike, just like the Goodies used to have, on one of the rare occasions I didn’t have my camera with me. It would have been better if he had two mates on with […]

Unicycle security

June 14th, 2006 · Comments Off on Unicycle security · Life

We are so used to seeing bicycles chained to lamp posts and railings everywhere that we almost do not notice them any more. But when you see a 3-metre unicycle chained to a lamp post you have to stop and look. I can’t see it catching on as a form of commuter transport though. There […]

That last post about Cheals roundabout reminded me about the recent mad scheme from John Redwood about ‘improving’ traffic – the one about allowing left turns at red traffic lights.

Why Wednesday?

May 24th, 2006 · Comments Off on Why Wednesday? · Life

This year the cycle racing in Crawley town centre is on a Wednesday. The first two races were held on Sundays. I would have thought it was easier to arrange all the road closures on a Sunday. Should be fun though

The Horror, The Horror

May 16th, 2005 · Comments Off on The Horror, The Horror · Life

Jayne and I went out to lunch today at Zari’s, an indian restaurant in Ifield. It was for all the (Labour) candidates in the county elections. A few couldn’t make it, but most did. It was a lot more fun than the meeting we had in the Labour club the other day about the elections […]
