Bike luck

After having a bike stolen a month ago and falling off last week, I've had more bike misfortune. Yesterday I was fined 30 pounds for crossing 3m of deserted footpath between the end of one bike path and the beginning of another. Grrr.

It's not much money but I feel stupid for being honest. When the community police person stopped me, she was talking on a mobile phone and I had to wait half a minute for her to finish the call. I could easily have cycled off or given false details.

I've learnt an important lesson and it's nothing to do with cycling on the footpath (which I don't like doing in any case).
