The Crunch

A vehicle has hit this cycle stand with such force that it has uprooted two paving stones and knocked the stand sideways. This happened on Tuesday, I think. The offender was probably driving a Heavy Goods Vehicle. All over the borough there are stands which have been smashed by vehicles which have mounted the pavement. All part of the hidden subsidy which the road haulage lobby enjoys. (This particular stand is on Hoe Street E17, across the road from the Citizens Advice Bureau.)
