I've had a couple of trials over the last couple of days, dashing around the West Midlands by bicycle and bus. It meant to be all by bicycle, then I got 12 miles from home, had a puncture, no money, no wallet and no repair kit. Oooops.
Then yesterday, having borrowed funds to get home by bus, I went out collect the bike, got lost in Tipton (reading a map while cycling is so not my forte), found West Bromwich and eventually got myself home. 25ish miles over two days, just after cross country pantomime, so not too bad. Must do some more later... even if Operation c2c seems to be on the rocks.
Oh - and interesting link on Making The Corpse Bride.
