Never been a fan of straight lines. Morally, professionally, educationally, ethically and in all other aspects of life. I appreciate the determination and lack of deviation I see in those around me and the wonderful success it brings them but in my case, I was born with a wonky front wheel and I have learnt to find utter pleasure and joy in the swerves and cuts I make as I pedal through life. Lack of conformity and purposeful continuous change is what keeps wrinkles off my face, fire in my soul and insatiable thirst for riding the living fuck out of everything.
Oxford City Council Civil Enforcement Officer refused to either ticket or speak with the multiple drivers despite explaining the multiple illegality (double yellows, crossed solid white line into cycle lane, parked on pavement) and the danger this parking poses to cyclists who have to move into traffic. (we have reported this first to a very polite control team)
This is insane, when laws just aren't enforced. So we intend to shame each one of the vans and companies for doing it.
Our business relies on being able to filter past congestion using cycle lanes and be faster than vans. So expect us to enforce the law as you effect our business!

God damn. Once again I have taken my bike to a LBS as I have no free time to do my own repairs and yet again I end up with a disappointing experience. Knowing how hard it has been getting for local bike shops to thrive after the online retail store take over and having seen beautiful examples of reinvention, adaptation and survival, from local independent retailers, it breaks my heart when the mechanic or the sales guy has no interest in attention to detail, customer service or just the will to offer a good shop experience to customers. To hear those individuals moan about how hard it is for them later makes my blood boil. So here I stand, at 10 pm blasting March of the fire ants by Mastodon and opening a bottle of jack in preparation for fixing a simple job that some one made worse for 50 quid. #veloflambe#ridehardbrewmellow#cyclinggripes#supportyourlocalbikeshop#bikemessenger#cyclecourier#doityourself#mastodon#marchofthefireants#homemecanic#fuckinfriday
