"Nice. I actually think this is a very nice way of them to earn some cash so I can continue enjoying their service - and I might get some better bike infrastructure out of it. Plus the data nerd in me can't help but be impressed."

I feel healthier now than in the last 15 years.

Oh dear. According to that I'm not really cut out for knighthood.
I can't grow hair on top of my head and hate shaving!

I'll have to look around for a chainmail jersey and knicks with solid pewter chamois :-)

I was so glad I packed everything and bought arm warmers just the week before!

It was overcast, damp and a bit breezy a the beach for the start.…
