    Spotted a father and daughter tourist team at the Tron looking anxiously at a map. Much anguished pointing and squinting.

    Father Gembo gave me two acts of random kindness by way of penance the other day so I went over and asked what they were looking for. Directed them to the Elephant House and went my way.

    Caught up with my peloton by the statue of Wellington. Cycling is the transport mode lets you be nice and get there on time.

    I'm quite enjoying the possibility that they weren't looking for the Elephant House.

    Someone pedalling a Sinclair C5 (or something that looked like one) on West Granton Access (spotted on both my commute to and from work today).

    Big John emerging from undergrowth just west of Harrison Park. I might have stopped to talk to him had I spotted him sooner, although I was running a little late today.

    A hearty tring! tring! in my rearview mirror turned out to be the familar shape of Morningsider, sartorially filtering through the traffic in which I was stuck, near the bottom of Morningside. The torpedo is really useless in dense traffic.

    I put the hammer down on the next green and nearly caught up, a few blocks up the hill, but then lost sight amongst various passing cars.

    A bus driver gave me a wave and a wee flash of the headlights as I sped down the B7003 later on, swiftly followed by a wave and a wee flash of the headlights from the friend of my next door neighbour.

    I managed to spot Big John from a distance this morning so stopped to chat. He has particularly enjoyed 'Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood' and 'IT Chapter Two' at the cinema recently, the former of which I enjoyed bits of but found to be fairly bloated and underwhelming, and the latter of which I have yet to see but have heard very mixed reviews.

    With regards to the Slow Cycling Movement, the Just Eat bikes lend themselves to that too, as does my German city bike. Slow down and enjoy the journey!
