Medway $chunt 17/3/11
« on: 17 March, 2011, 10:36:51 PM »
So while you folks up there in the Big City are standing around on street corners waiting for $cars to come out and play we've all been whizzing round the Medway Towns.  OK, as well as standing around for a bit on a corner as well, but The River Medway with its views of Rochester Castle and Cathedral are sooo much more inspiring than the junction of Orchardson and Frampton Streets.

Anyway. I thought I arrived at the Pen at around 10am and waiting there was MG and Blinky. And oooh, doesn't Blinky's bike look all lovely and shiny.  Shortly afterwards we were joined by Tom Tom and Spica....

... and then two $cars who had been out doing their best to keep death off the roads and hopefully off the pavements too, arrived back at the Pen.

While they had their morning tea break we were joined by a man with a microphone who asked us all sorts of questions about the NoToMob and so on. I understand he is to edit what we said into some form of understandable language for broadcast on one of those new fangled wireless thingies.

Then, having given up waiting for his sound effect of the bikes all revving up to chase a $car he went off to get some Vox Pops.  Which of course prompted both cars to leave the pen and we were away, Blinky TomTom and MG after the first one and then me and Spica after Car 57.

Sneaky sod, tried to lose us by going through the council car park and through the barrier but I wheeled my bike along the pavement to get round the barrier and we were off towards Chatham.  A quick tour round there, Twydall, Gillingham netted them a number of tickets but we managed to save a few, hopefull including one van owner who was making some quick repairs to his vehicle in a quiet back street but on double yellows.

Once again we got a lot of thumbs up from the public and from one or two members of the Kent Constabulary.

After a fantastic ride through more of the countryside I had to get home to meet the Gas man, leaving Spica  to provide the visible (and very audible) deterrent.

No major incidents but I'll see if there is any interesting footage on the camera today. More I suspect from MG who was out again this evening.

You lot seem to have so much fun down there, I'm considering relocating, westminster only seem to use a fraction of their $cars, $camden have reduced the fleet by 50%.

I need to be on street corner using my sign, and obviously interacting with my public  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

BLINLKY

Why have you left the fastener from under the nearside indicator off ? or have you lost it.

also although the bike does look clean ;D I noticed that the lower fairing is very dirty behind the  front wheel and needs cleaning before you take to the streets of medway again.. :P
