    Laka users - how often are you paying the base rate, and how often are you paying the capped rate?

    I like the idea of the model but I will like it less so if I’m paying the capped rate eight months out of 12

    Early days for me, but I have paid close to the maximum in my first two months as they have had a lot of claims. I think this is going to be their problem long term and it isn't going to be particularly cheap, which, I think, is their main USP. I hope I am wrong though.

    I was down on Waterloo Bridge earlier today.

    The protestors are doing a great job, very peaceful friendly vibe. The over-the-top police presence is completely unnecessary imo. People are being arrested (several whilst I was there), released without charge and then coming back to protest again. There are loads of police just standing around doing nothing down at the IMAX end of the bridge.

    He was best when David Harmon was principle and he was the one back at the office coming up with amusing anecdotes for whatever region the Tour de France was passing through to break up the commentary.

    I agree with that, but he is not up to commentary. He doesn't have a basic understanding of the sport and hasn't improved at all over the years he's been at Eurosport. It's not as if they lack better alternatives (Rob Hatch, Matt Stephens etc.)

    De Gendt's impressive break today made all the more fun by reading @taogeogheganhart tweeting his frustrations with Carlton Kirby.

    How Carlton Kirby got a job as a cycling commentator, I'll never know. Still, there are signs that he is being relegated to the less important races this season. Hope that continues.

    But what's actually going to happen is Lutsenko will go on the Cipressa, crash 3x on the Poggio and outsprint Allan Phillip with two broken arms for the win.

    Lutsenko isn't riding.

    Saw the van parked on Endymion Road on my way home yesterday.

    damn. That is awful. I'd have said a lot more than that mate!

    Definitely the closest shave I've had in over a decade of commuting in London. He turned left at the mini roundabout a bit further on, where I go straight on, so I never caught up with him to remonstrate. Probably for the best. Hopefully, the Police will do something.

    All of that stretch is a fucking shitshow with the parked cars and the amount of traffic, it's really annoying that you can't even just "relax" for a second without some bellend taking advantage

    Yes, they need to remove the on-street parking and build some cycle paths. I hate riding along there, but the alternative is Seven Sisters Road.
