Shine a Light on Me

Day nine, the end of Bike Week. Lest it be thought that every silver lining has a cloud, let’s end on a positive note. Because, after all, clouds can seriously put a damper on cycling. Which is why, despite its commitment to energy efficiency, the Council is determined to make cycling an illuminating experience on its off-road cycle lanes. And I for one am not complaining (it makes the rats even easier to see).

Where is this latest shining example of the Council’s energy efficiency commitment? Some local authorities put a number on every lighting column, with a freephone number to ring if there’s a problem. But the London Borough of Waltham Forest has no time for nonsense like that, so I’ll have to give a clue. Think Aztec.
