I set off to work on my bike assuming that the part of the road where the torch was not travelling would be open....silly me...it wasn't! I limped along with bike for some of the route then decided to get on and ride off as normal. There was a brief moment when I felt like a celebrity with crowds lining my way but they soon disbanded and the madness moved on...I rode off to work wondering why there were crowds on the streets....what were they actually watching? supporting? B'ah humbug!
