Links of the day hour.

entangled quantum kittens

Petition about Highway code wording which might be used to force cyclists to use crazy cycle lanes.

Oddica Octopus goodness -- if only some of the stickers were t-shirts, though

Cycle Lanes
Those are some godawful cycle lanes!

I'll not complain about some of the nasty lane-changing I have to contend with for left turns.

Highway code wording
I checked the CTC page on the subject and it does look like the bad wording got though to the draft, despite assurances from ministers that cyclists had nothing to fear.

Disturbingly, research in to cycle safety shows that at junctions cycle lanes are more dangerous than cycling on the road, and cycle tracks (as on Botley Road) more dangerous still.

the quark kittens were being described to me in the last day or so, can't remember exactly where but I think it was on someone else's canal boat, late the other night.

Cycle lanes; there's one in Chiswick that makes a tight slalom around a phone box; I sent a picture to Private Eye, but I don't think they ever used it.
