Maybe it’s okay in Yorkshire, but I have terrifying memories of ‘darn sarth’ stuck in traffic jams all the way from Tolworth to Brighton. (Bit of hyperbole there, but hey, this is MY blog). What… Read More

Driving through Market Weighton I saw lots of blue and yellow bikes decorating the front gardens. On coming out I saw scores of people lining the roads and guessed what was happening. I… Read More
