Hi Grandad, it's working just fine on my computer- so it's certainly not just for smartphones. Hope you can get it working :D

The link appeared in a tweet in my twitter feed this morning. It's been doing the rounds since.

An update has been posted in the last few minutes, the maximum number of free uses on the promo code has been exceeded :( .

What rot! Should it not have said if there was a maximum number of copies?

Meanwhile, you could watch this - it's like a different world!



Also, this is one of my favourite photos - the Dutch Prime Minister going to visit the King... :)

Thanks to Gaz for the tip-off. This is a film I've wanted to watch for some months, and I've just finished it. Really worth the 55 minutes.Some interesting thoughts about the intangible aspects of cycling (culture, interaction, mutual trust) as much as the tangibles (health and economic benefits)
I first learned about the film from the wonderful @fietsprofessor on twitter - worth following.
