Evidently over the weekend a motor vehicle has crashed into the rising bollard here and shed oil over the road.

I was forced to use the unsatisfactory cycle bypass for the first time!

21795Photo #21795A very slanty image of a lorry -- doing some things that aren't too clever and are illegal/unlawful/immoral. MX08 CZE; as he pulled up onto the pavement (note: the empty loading bay to the left of the bike stands), I had a quick chat with him involving quite a lot of pointing at signs, road markings, kerb markings, his vehicle, signs, &c. He caught up with me later on, after he'd delivered his goods for the "five minutes", as he'd promised me -- "I hope you go die"; such nice behaviour from a fellow human.

21536Photo #21536Leaflets have arrived for the Reach Fair bike ride.

There are 10,000 here, arrived in five boxes weighing a total of 59kg.

Each leaflet is 2/3 of A4 and printed on 130 gsm paper.

Doing the maths for this... (A4 is 1/16 th of a square metre.)

10,000 * 2/3 * 1/16 * 0.13 = 54 kg.

(ignores the weight of the cardboard, sticky tape and ink).

Hmmm, that implies that there are about 10% more leaflets.

I think these racks will disappear again, when a new location is found for them, to leave space for outdoor seating at the new restaurant.
