Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Tube Strike!

Disaster!  Today, London Underground are on strike. This doesn't actually have a lot to do with me, as I don't use it. What it does mean is that on my commute (which this morning was on a motorbike), there are flocks of people who seem to try and get squished at every opportunity. Some are on foot, others on bicycles, but the kind I like the most ride 50cc scooters, without a care in the world. It's much nicer when they are all safely herded underground...

Bad news today is that the National Environmental Research Council are planning to close some sites administered by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. On the plus side, elephants are the only species on Earth with four knees. Lots of work to do, and I might play squash later.
