The highway code is preparing for a new version, as it regularly does, and the current version before parliament for consideration contains the phrase "cyclists should use cycle facilities where possible" - regardless of whether convenient or even safe. There's a petition up on the number 10 site requesting that this clause be re-thought. As many of my friends-list cycle I thought I'd mention it here (previously it has travelled through cam.misc, the cambridge cycling campaign mailing list, the #chiark irc channel, and another friend's LJ - it's interesting that I can recognise names from all those places). Anyway it's here if you're interested: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/roads4bikes/.
In other news, and on which I'll try and write more later, since nothing has really happened until you've blogged about it:
- My sister is married and the wedding was utterly utterly lovely.
- We still don't have a desk, but may do tomorrow if we're lucky.
- And 65 Days of Static were excellent last night at the Junction 2 - proper tour later this year, do catch them if you can.
