    I meant Iain and his hammer. But podenco sitting has a powerful appeal...

    @Frenchy I'm not doing any work now. Just looking at the pictures of lovely dogs.

    I can't get the song "If I had a hammer ....." out of my head now.

    Recombodna and his big blue van outside my flat. Now I have a trailer to figure out!

    Perfect conjunction of four bikes on Seafeild Prom this morning. Two pairs of bikes, a faster (overtaking) and a slower, going opposite directions passed just as each pair were themselves level, giving a fleeting alignment of all four bikes.

    The only thing missing was Red Arrows style coloured smoke.

    Second spot / bike related acquisition of the day: @crowriver at his lock up. I now have a Dutch front carrier, hurrah.

    The man in the Planet X hat who I thought might have said something as he passed as I went down the Hawkhill slope turned out to be earthowned, who illuminated the patches of smashed glass as I swept.

    Cycle racks on Princes Street. Proper ones. On the same side as the shops. They're new, aren't they?

    They are! Think there's supposed to be over 100 going in altogether.

    What! 100 racks on Princes Street?

    I think so.

    EDIT: Seems I was confused, and was remembering over 100 bikes, rather than racks. This list has 60 racks being installed, as well as12 on Waterloo Place:

    Someone who might have been ARobComp at Leamington Lift Bridge yesterday evening?

    @Iain McR, Mrs Iain McR, MicroMcR (asleep) perambulating past the coffee shop window.

    (I am still listening to the conspiracy theorist at the next table who has descended into full on racism and stopped being funny a good while ago...)

    Pub in Longstone which has a great big chalk board outside to advertise their latest deals. Only, the prices have been rubbed off, so it just says

    ALL PINTS
    HOUSE VODKA

    Saturday night, Beeb4, the French cop drama Engrenages (or Spiral in Britspeak). A rather fruity homespun cargo hauling bike wheeled gracefully across an entire cutaway shot. I was so intrigued I had to take a shot. Looks like 650B wheels there? A vintage steed at any rate. One thing's for sure, the roads in that arrondissement must be in very good nick - you'd never get away with that setup on the crater strewn roads of fair Edina.

    saw @nedd1e_h on his bike this morning in the snow - I was sliding about and arriving in a mess late late for school as he was leaving, having delivered his children at the appropriate time I presume.

    @algo

    Er, well, you should've seen the panic in our house 15mins prior to that ;)

    Sorry for not reverse spotting you

    Given that there can't be that many households in rural West Edinburgh with the technical equipment, the growth mindset and the requisite physical skills and abilities, was that partner-of-Dave I passed on the towpath this morning? She was towing a child trailer* into town along a snow-covered towpath.

    *It was extremely similar to one I've seen @Dave towing in the same area in the past.

    spotted a smiling and waving roibeard in traffic as I turned down valleyfield.

    (it would actually be much more worth reporting if he weren't smiling and waving...)

    Not to be outdone, I returned to the house on foot to collect the bike, after spotting algo waving from his bike...

    Tyre tracks in the snow leaving my street again this morning. They were there yesterday, too.

    There must be another year round cyclist. It's quite disconcerting, but nice to see.

    Track the tracks back to their front door, ring bell and introduce yourself. Normal and reasonable behaviour?

    This is how you discover you go for a cycle in your sleep.

    I like to think @HankChief sometimes pedals in his sleep. Like when our old dog is dreaming about running and her paws make the motions.

    @fimm (trembling, hopeful voice) Are there any stands in Shandwick Place?

    Some at the west end on the south side, by the entrance to Atholl Crescent Lane. If you mean the shoppy bit of Shandwick Place rather than the tramstoppy crescent bit then NUP, just the fence at the east end, then some stands beside Fraser's by the entrance to Hope St Lane.

    @wingpig (sigh) so nothing by shops like Sainsburys, the Co-op and the rest that I sometimes go to and which are on a main commuting route. Bike to be tied to the traffic light pole then.
