Flood is thicker than water: Cycling York's new Everglades
It wasn't the best time to realise you'd left a bike locked to the riverside racks by Lendal Bridge (picture).
Cycling is, therefore, not always straightforward (picture).
This particular bike ride decided not to go any further; anyway, one of the group said they were allergic to fish.
There's No Cycling in the park, though local custom is to ignore it. Nobody was cycling today, though.
So perhaps York's city centre Pavement Cycling problem will resolve itself soon, thanks to global warming: those low-lying footways will simply be too flooded too often to bother cycling on.
