    Thanks for this, will watch later. I’m quite envious of him spending the spring/summer riding around the UK coastline over many months. Sorry, I mean inspired!

    Amey, amazing spot (as a lunch spot too), I’m starting to think you have an omnipotent presence online and IRL. The Matrix but with cargo bikes. Have started following Hullabaloo, thanks for the heads up.

    Amazing, thank you for the offer @Yoshy let me see how today goes, and how much time I might have over weekend/Monday, plus where I can get the parts these days. Maplins closed (RIP), RS components closed at weekends, will check for SE London places in a tick.

    Possible hobby project/beer money here - 24v led lightbox needs to flash a pre-programmed morse code;

    ask any q's here - or let me know if you have any other suggestions, thank you!

    Ahhh cool, thank you. I’d searched for ‘pi’ but not ‘π’ - appreciated.

    And he's just confirmed the LED strips are running from a 24v DC transformer, should that make a difference.

    Seems best place to ask, but anyone fancy a relatively simple Arduino/pi project over the next few days/weekend? My brother would like to make an LED lightbox flash in a morse code sequence. I've never worked on an electronics project like this, would love to get stuck in after looking over projects on Instructables etc, but I just don't have the time atm ...or the knowledge about the amount of power that will be drawing and the right type of board to use

    Can pay for your time, equipment, travel and expertise - I can put you in touch direct.
    The light box is in Hackney, just off Morning Lane, and looks like this. Deadline would be end of weekend/Monday (installation is Tues). Appreciate if anyone has any other suggestions. I've looked at programable LED banks, basic info screens, drop a monitor in with a gif animation etc, but seem a lot of cost/faff to install. Any thoughts appreciated.

    That’s just crazy - whatever’s wrong with a pyramid copper hat?? Much cheaper. …oh wait.

    @King_Saxlingham same feeling here! He stayed in Cardigan a few miles from the event I was at last weekend, and he encourages people to say hi and have a chat. Some sightings by riders, and someone gave him a hand fixing his bike (and got a sticker from him!), but alas, I missed him. Got sent a link to The Cycling Podcast (episode 200) interview with him - again, quite envious of his free spirit approach to epic rides

    Cheers @Angus thanks for the message!

    Wow, never knew that. What a strange thing to fabricate, poor bloke. People would have enjoyed his company no matter what his background. Sorry to hear DJ, that must have been difficult for you to learn. …actually thought the no 2 was going to be that Ceo_of_the_year carry on….
