The marathon is an order of magnitude larger in publicity, so I think more people know not to bother driving anywhere near zone 1. I'm still not sure what the event was, to be honest.

I went to lunch with her. 90 minutes from Waterloo via train and bus. The road form Battersea Park to Vauxhall was static, so whilst wanting to encourage healthy pursuits like cycling, is it necessary to create so much pollution elsewhere? A difficult judgement but worth a thought.

Irony is difficult perhaps to convey, and I apologise if it has been misunderstood, and it would be a shame if utterly mistaken cold-reads about another members' imputed politics were to hi-jack the OPs' thread .

During last year's event it took me an hour and half from Swindon to Hammersmith, and then two and a half hours from Hammersmith to SE1. Where do I send the invoice for my wasted Sunday?
