Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

I saw some ungraffiti artists at work tonight. My description drew a smile, and I sense that they may become the ungraffiti group :D

Indeed, they appeared to be a flashmob comprised entirely of degraffitification operatives. I was somewhat intimidated in the Sleaford railway underpass by their politeness and brandishing of paint rollers. I got out of there pretty quickly I can tell you.

I hope the scruffy yobs are back tomorrow!
