Public Service Announcement (Code: Free Food)

The more perceptive among you might have spotted that free food is one of my main motivations. Which is why I’ll be along to the City of London Bike To Work Day celebrations on Friday morning (the 18th, i.e. tomorrow, from 7.30), outside St Paul’s Cathedral. The police will be there, to write off people’s tickets, and explain why they never bother to go after motorcyclists who ride in the cycle lanes (friend of mine was knocked off by one on Friday). Halfords will be there, to give us useful advice on bike ownership and maintenance. Lorry drivers will be on hand, to let us sit in their cab and see just how invisible cyclists are when you’re negotiating a left-hand turn whilst simultaneously changing the track on your iPod, arguing with your wife on the mobile and trying to balance a full cup of very hot coffee with no lid. There will even be an organization called Young Driver, no doubt looking to secure our custom the moment we grow out of bicycles. But, above and beyond all of this, there will be a free breakfast for anyone arriving on a bike.

Free breakfast? See you there!

    When did WordPress start putting Google ads on blogs?! (They don’t show up if you’re logged in)

    It’s a cynicism born of lots and lots of motorbikes in cycle lanes, engines in ASLs, and lorry drivers turning into my path whilst balancing a very full cup of hot coffee without a lid. Seriously, that happened yesterday morning. Right before I passed a woman putting on her eye makeup whilst driving over Blackfriars Bridge. (In case you’ve never put on eye makeup, it not only uses both hands, but involves lots of closing your eyes and squinting.)
