Bus stop in Partick

Conversations from Calais

I was reading this and another couple of posters when an older Glasgow guy stopped and said, ‘Whit’s this all about?”. I explained to him about ‘guerrilla’ leaflets, posters to highlight subjects to the general public that are not covered by the mainstream media etc. He looked at me as if to say, ‘Whit!”, followed by, “I’ll tell you, it is the government’s fault!”

Current status

Cycling: 1,081km of 7,500km (230km behind pace)

Running: 97km of 600km (7km behind pace)

The second wettest February since records began, many storms, and booking the bike in for a service have all meant that I’m falling behind my cycling target.

I have exported my training from Strava so I can start creating more detailed statistics. Here is a chart of February’s cycling distance accumulation in red. January’s is in grey. Mid-January I was busy with work, and the second half of February had stormy, wet weather.
