The Spirit Of Adventure

Right, I've had enough!

I'm fed up to the high heavens with selfish carrots who park like absolutely self-entitled idiots. So much so that I had some stickers printed - those in the pic above.

No, I'm not being petty. Pavement parking requires people to also drive on the pavement, and that is dangerous. Between 2012 and 2018, in the UK, drivers killed an average of 42 pedestrians on the pavement. Those deaths include a 3yo girl run over and killed by a van driver parking on the pavement, but there are many similar, equally tragic stories in amongst those numbers.

Most people actually oppose pavement parking. Oh, and for the very few American readers, what we call "pavement", you call "sidewalk".
I expect you also get annoyed by selfish and inconsiderate parking. Usually, there's nothing we can do about it, other than shake our heads in disapproval. Until now, that is!

I have 60 of these stickers, and will be giving half away. Three of you can each get a pack of 10 of these stickers. Yes, for free! All you need to do is reply to this newsletter, to let me know you want to be in the draw. As ever, I'll feed your names into the online random selector, then I'll announce the winner in the next newsletter.

It's not for me to tell you how to live your life, but if you do win a pack of stickers, I'd suggest you don't place them directly in the driver's line-of-sight, on the off chance that some gum residue remains when they remove it.

May all the pavements around you be free of cars!

The Blast From The Past button is quite straightforward: with every edition, I link a random old WillCycle post to it. If you click it, you will see what old WillCycle post it takes you to.
The button will only ever point at WillCycle.

Did You Know...?

Lots of people talk to plants, but did you know plants make sounds? Scientists found that plants emit sounds when stressed, with different species making different sounds.
Why have you never heard it? Simple: the sounds are at a far higher frequency than what humans can hear.

What Did You Miss On WillCycle?

When there's nothing left to say...

Since January 2021, I've been churning out a LOT of content, usually posting two posts per week, and at times a lot more.That resulted in WillCycle having a great deal of content that I'm really proud of. Some things really resonated with visitors to the site. Some of those were expected: my Crash Card post and my highly detailed guide …

Manifold Way Traffic-free Cycle Route

Manifold Way Traffic-free Cycle Route
Manifold Way cycle route overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ Manifold Way gets its name from the River Manifold, and that in turn started out as "many folds", referring to the many meanders.
