    I should be ok for tonight.

    There's a corner and a low wall. So I'm worried about swept volume.

    Went to try a cargo bike and didn't buy it because my wife is adamant it won't fit through our gate.

    Is anyone willing to ride their bullitt down to kennington to give it a go?

    I'm off to try a gazelle cabby on Friday.

    It's not what I want but it might be what I need.

    (Stress free to lock up around London, carries kiddo+guest, good for shopping, takes the occasional bulky load to the dump.)

    If it works I'll be selling our much loved wehoo trailer - about 1yr old. Anyone interested?

    The car free street group in our area organised a diversion down streets which usually carry no traffic, which was a bit annoying as drivers have now learned a new rat run and continue to use it.

    They could have been directed back onto the main roads instead.

    Cheers. Looks pretty interesting. What did you do for accommodation?

    I've got 4 days on my own in Japan next April and I need to start and finish in Tokyo (Haneda).

    I'll take my own bike, probably.

    Does anyone have suggestions for routes or places to stay? I'm pretty happy doing 80-120 miles a day and would quite like to do a coast-to-coast trip.

    Only if they drive a private vehicle in London. I suspect most low earners (which in London means anything up to 60k a year family income) take the bus/tube.

    Road charging which scales with wealth would be pretty cool, but in this case the perfect may be the enemy of the good.

    The primary beneficiary of road charging would be people who live on busy roads, or who benefit from increased government budgets. So that's helpful at least.

    Oh FFS I will be away for Easter 2020, as it's very early :-/

    Maybe an alternate arrow later in the year when it's less freezing?

    The LFGSS team arrow was the 400 I've enjoyed most.

    Can probably think of a few tweaks for next year. Mostly to do with pacing rather than route, though.
