Bah! No luck at Lidl yesterday.
At both the New Kent Road and Peckham stores, they'd sold out of all the items I wanted (bike computer, lights, tools). If they'd ever had them.
It was pants. Literally. That was the only thing they had on offer. There were a couple of other cyclists forlornly rummaging through the baskets of unwanted legwear in vain too.
No doubt the promise of cut-price cycle accessory bounty was all a cheap ruse to get me in to the store, thinking that I'd take out my frustrated desire-to-acquire by instead buying some three-quid bottle of US Ruby Cabernet with a suspiciously foamy look about it.
In which case it clearly worked.
Google Maps must improve if it wants cyclists to use it - Cyclists don’t just want the fastest route they want the safest or quietest – and information on bike parking would be a bonus We all have different ways...
