I'm still waiting to see what sort of bike has exhaust boxes that get dumped on roads and cycle paths. And even more pressing, has anyone seen a number of one shoed cyclists, who obviously drop the other while on their bikes.

I see this week Matt Seaton questions the future of road racing after the tragic death of Jason MacIntyre while training on public roads.

A friend of mine's cat met a free flying scarlet macaw, when it managed to get into a neighbours house (the owners of said parrot). I'm afraid the parrot lost.

I tend to shout, "Are you colour blind?" at red light jumpers. Most of them seem to deaf as well, or abusive, not to mention stupid. :roll:

I really do try not to make judgements about other people, until I get out of bed that is, then it all seems to be forgotten in the struggle for survival.
