i am in your suburb mapping your street

I am in Leicester until Sunday.

Been mapping, obviously. Did South Highfields yesterday afternoon (12 miles cycling) and St Matthew's/St Mark's today (14 miles cycling). Also mapping Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Aiming to cover more of the West End, Belgrave Road area, remaining bits of Crown Hills, and maybe Spinney Hills.

Getting on much better with bicycle than I did at Christmas. Unsure why. Possibly because I'm not mapping Spinney Hills or Rowlatts Hill or any place with 'hill' in the name. Tending towards taking cycle back with me to London. The internets tell me folding bicycles are allowed without restrictions on my train back.

People on #osm were discussing whether brothels (in the UK) should be tagged, and if so, how. We found at least one node with amenity=brothel in the database - in Folkestone. I don't think people were taking seriously my ideas for what icon to show them with, though. :/
