what i did do was a great deal of mapping on my bicycle:
compare before (left) and after (right):
i'd set myself a target of doing the entirety of leicester east of the railway line. this was not to be, but i'm still quite pleased with what i did : northfields, humberstone, hamilton, netherhall, thurnby lodge, rowlatts hill, north evington, random bits around the city centre, and a good start on crown hills/spinney hills. i hope by year end 2008 it will be finished.
i return to london tomorrow. i shall be in the pembury tavern in the evening.
