    Interested but let me look into surly geo. How tall are you, assuming the saddle height is set up for you? Cheers

    Thats the strong impression I'm getting.

    That, and over time, people providing these services are moving onto instagram to promote their businesses - and thats something i don't use - I'm missing out.

    I've gone with a local business we've relied on in the past (veg).

    Any recommendations for vegan catering serving Islington / Hackney?

    Oliver's previous suggestion (vegan peasant catering) looks closed since early last year sadly.

    I'm looking for buffet / street food style for around 10-20 people.

    Thats an incredible map thanks for sharing.

    I think it's this report by rachel aldred that debunks the perceived issues about demographics and LTNs:

    Thanks for the update on lbhf. Hope it goes well.

    Yet another appalling presentation - falsely saying main roads are like rivers. Car traffic is not a force of nature, it is a product of human choices - it would be useful for assistant directors in LBHF to recognise this fundamental point.

    Sad to hear this for Ealing. I understand the new leader of ealing council has had a senior role at commonplace (he may still do). He has said all other LTNs will go to a CPZ style referendum. It will be interesting to see what happens. Needless to say, I think this is the wrong way of doing it.

    As always, credit to hackney, camden, islington for sticking with LTNs, as well as others like lambeth where I assume we can expect even more with their recent leadership change.

    A bit slow off the mark here, but we're picking up the bread baking baton here.

    Anyone know a good shop around Islington or Hackney which sells things like bread proving baskets?

    My dog loves our infrequent pedalme taxi rides. Much more than trains and cars. I assume he'll trust me just as much when it's me pedalling.

    I've just joined the cargo bike club with a decently priced second hand workcycles fr8. Cycled my brompton to pick up the new bike, and it handled nicely on the way home with my brompton tied on the back. Looking forward to riding around with more heavy stuff, passengers and convincing my dog to get in a large box on the front.

    Looking for a service and some replacement parts/accessories. I think Bikefix is a workcycles dealer.

    Any other recommendations for a lbs out there to get parts or accessories?

    Just finished bullsh*t jobs by david graeber. I really enjoyed it and i think its a solid addition to the books about the working world and shorter working weeks. It kept me well entertained
