Uninteresting Trivial Facts


Recommended Posts


Today, I made my second ride on a boris bike.

How's the Boris bike experience working out?

(I realise this is probably conduct contrary to the spirit of the thread, but I am actually interested.)

I think it's going well - I've got no complaints about it. There have been a few issues with stations not locking/docking properly but so far the wholesale vandalism/theft/rivers of blood haven't happened and the bikes do seem to be in regular use.

The only problems I'm aware of have been software related: rogue journeys showing up on people's accounts; docking stations not processing requests; the TfL map not being accurate on whether there are bikes/stations available.

I am however a complete newbie with regards to any form of serious cycling so I'm not the best person to ask about whether the bikes themselves are any good. They seem fine, though heavy, to me.

I'm wary of these bicycle schemes. It's all part of a UN conspiracy to take over the world!

Its a conspiracy I tells yer

Awesome! :D

Ta for that, pleased to hear that it seems to be going well. I would imagine the bikes would have to be fairly robustly built out of necessity, so you'd expect them to be on the hefty side.

Awesome! :D

Being part of a global conspiracy must make it even more satisfying. :)

I saw his tomb last week.

(Oscar Wilde's not Millman's)

Elsewhere in that boneyard there is a tomb with a beautiful eulogy by a chap to his wife. It reads very simply "Elle provoquait la joie".

Finding the tomb of the 'Famille Adam' made me smile.

The scale of that place is astonishing. We were there for a couple of hours and we probably only covered a fraction of it.

It is indeed!

If you want a bit more detail about it - there are loads of anecdotes both good and bad here and a bunch of responses here as well.
