Ram's Head - Jacob's art II

First twinned toilet experience!

Maybe I live a sheltered experience but I hadn't come across one of these before.
I couldn't resist whipping out my camera for this one seen in the RSA restroom earlier today,
....'flushing away poverty'

Route visualisation with cycle routes

The 08:02 29 June 'track' was actually a run rather than a cycle. 
The full route length was 8.0km (6.9km in magenta plus 1.1km before I started recording!)

NB used to upload gpx file from W995.
- also I've found currently to be a smart way to store activity and performance data.

First time in Brighton.. we had a great time as cycling base and about town

yes, that is a wafer thin biscuit spoon 
...stuck into a slab of ice cold rhubarb and ginger 

Those pies must have gone somewhere - Cycling from Ditchling Beacon to Lewes perhaps..

..they most probably disappeared on these tortuous hills (in the heat) or when I took a deep breath in to pose for the picture

Discovering Stane Street (nr Arundel)

Wikipedia notes ...

Stane Street is the modern name given to an important 90 kilometres (56 mi) long Roman road in England that linked London to the Roman town of Noviomagus Reginorum, orRegnentium, later renamed Chichester by the Saxons.[1][2]
Stane Street shows clearly the principles of planning that the Romans used. The overall alignment is based on an accurate line "sighted" from London Bridge to Chichester, with subtle local variations to allow for not only the nature of the intervening terrain (gentle slopes are used to climb the South Downs at Bignor) but also the underlying geology (the preferred line stays on chalk ground and avoids London clay as far as possible).
