  • hoping someone will get Round to this soon... (see the tag at bottom of previous page)

  • Bottom of Round hill Cresent. I used to live round here so recognised it but just couldn’t get out.

    I'm impressed by those two massive "Brighton and Hove" planters at the bottom of RHC. I can't recall seeing anything like them elsewhere in B & H.

    RHC is a classic and iconic location in Brighton, and I'm glad you featured the red phone box in your tag. I wanted to, but forgot.

  • Nice tag - cut through from Bartholomew square to Black Lion St.

    Good spot! A new, but secondhand, bike.

    I read this article last year, and again this year: https://www.bikeradar.com/features/ridin­g-during-lockdown/ and was very taken with the Surly Steamroller, and the idea that I could do off-road detours while riding around town appealed to me a lot.

    Good luck getting a new Steamroller anytime soon, plus I love the mustardy yellow colour from around 2018 (I think), so I pounced when I saw this baby going 2nd hand.

    I love it. With fatter tyres and the steel frame, it's a smoother ride than (say) my Condor Lavoro. Plus I can off-road it whenever I want - e.g. the track that runs between Preston Park station and Withdean Stadium; also the woodland areas at the bottom of Coldean Lane.

    Plus I've taken it up the Downs Link, Cuckoo Trail, Pevensey Levels and more. It's got a bit muddy, but that's ok.

    Good old red-hubs Condor is on long-term loan to my friend Paul of Rule 5 Bikes so if you see that bombing around town, it ain't me!

  • Nice. I've got one as well and bloody love it.

  • Clue...

  • I rode past there yesterday but missed your new tag.

    Guess I'll just have to go for another ride. Darn.

  • Now absorbed into a cafe - hence the long shot. It's on Madeira Drive, opposite the volks railway terminal.

  • Haha, so first the previous tag gets painted over, and then the new tag gets caféised. Whatever next?

  • I don't mind the first tag getting painted over so much, but caféising our one and only Penfold postbox seems a bit out of order.
