    ^Thanks CCC... I'm sure i'll have more pics in the future, but have none at the moment. Everything is dead here, spring has yet to sprung.
    I have a few friends that own bike stores here in my town. I've been looking at a Garneau hybrid that I hope to get in a few months. I tried a road bike, but I don't like hunching over (although they are quite fast).
    Do you get to Derby much? I have relatives that live there who I visited quite often when I was there. Took a train up to Scotland too. Good memories!

    Don't normally venture to City's because of the traffic,today that was not an issue.

    I'll let the pictures do the talking...

    Loads of homeless drug addicts stinking the City centre up and fighting, it was like a scene from a Zombie Apocalypse.

    One came up to me screaming about how long he would get in prison for throwing a bucket of shit and piss over the Jobcentre staff who wouldn't give him any benefits.I replied "6 months" to which he yelled "i'd do 6 years" as i quickly peddled away.

    The beggars have no income now and are turning on each other.

    I actually felt scared in the city today,something I've never felt before even on Derby days.

    Very interesting, and thanks for sharing.

    Have noticed that your bike is always leaning on something when you go off to take a pic.

    Bogon Tip #529

    Purchase a kick-stand for under a fiver, and you will never have to keep searching for places to prop your bike up again.

    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    There is a saying: He's so stupid, I would not even dare to lean my bike on him. (That's why it's always better to provide the kick-stand...)

    Nice pics, Chitty.
    Looks like all is in bloom now.

    I've been biking a lot over the last month too. Normally around 20 km per day so far.
    Took a pic of a pretty crab apple tree today.

    We are allowed more than one hours exercise a day in the U.K now.
    Cycling is a great isolating exercise, getting a couple of hours in every other day.
    I bet there's a few bikes in that canal, i hope Lulu can swim.
