thread down to only 16°C
this morning. Amazing
permalink it's so much fresher
though has crept up to 26.5 here at the kitchen table. and typically it will be biblical rain when i am in town later.

now over to bongo for the travel
permalink it was so nice!
we had the window open and there was a breeze!
permalink on another matter
im having a look for a 100mile ride to peterborough with a mate, I've done the first half of this route before to biggleswade but if you had any thoughts on my route to peterborough avoiding huntingdon it would be good to know (passing through st ives for some lunch would probably be handy i thought, but not essential)
permalink the bit from Biggsleswade
up to St ives is good. Beyond? honestly no idea. the only place in that area north of St ives towards Peterborough i've ever been to is Old Hurst (farm shop/café with alligators) and never past the A141 at all. Honestly given the aforementioned reptiles there may may well be dragons.
I have though been to Chatteris and honestly the Half Man Half Biscuit song is deeply inaccurate
permalink No prick barriers
at each end?
permalink I'm guessing the whole
'envy of the fens' bit. And the pool. And the chandlers.
permalink Aye, but who doesn't love
a good chandle?
permalink there is a pool
and there's a half decent. if not first class, cake shop. Lack of butchers or chandlers. "Prick barriers" seems to be something Nigel invented. No town hall.
permalink bus service
is sporadic
permalink Prick barriers
are those devices that block a lane meaning traffic has to filter in each direction, see entrance to Lode/Quy etc,
permalink I'm not sure
that that's right, or at least, wasn't right when the song was written
permalink well,
the debate certainly lingered on, though not about the most dangerous junction in christendom. It seems that 'crick barriers' became 'prick barriers'
permalink cheers for that, the roads all look ok on streetview but that
doesn't mean they aren't chock full of wankers and trucks.

we will see how it goes.
