Had to cycle this fence-post home from B&Q this morning. I should have painted 'Vampire Bicycle Response Unit' on the panniers.
It was actually quite comfortable to cycle with the bike like this, though bare summer legs wouldn't have been a good idea, despite the mild weather at last. Those splinters can be hard to winkle out when you have to use a mirror to see them.
Of course it's not the first time I've done something like this. If I got stopped by a copper and done for dangerous cycling, I'd have to ask for several similar fences to be taken into account.
