So you’ve invited several thousand people to Edinburgh on their bikes to tell their politicians they want to see a cycle friendly country. And come Friday evening the forecast is for heavy rain, and on Saturday morning the actuality is heavy rain, and you’re busy rewriting an expectations-managing press release …
and then something odd happens.
The rain stops. And the sun comes out.
And so did all the cyclists.
Nothing is free in this world, however. So I suppose I should not have been startled to look up this afternoon and discover that it was snowing.
Oh, and for those wondering how you carry bamboo on a bike? You ask a nice man to do it for you. Either that, or our head marshal is trying out for the Edinburgh University Quidditch team.
