Tomorrow.

Woohooo, doing the Bikesafe course tomorrow on Cubbie, can't wait. Don't know why I'm so excited, maybe because like the local easter egg run, I've always missed out on entering or being able to enter or having a bike on the road. Hope they will make allowances for Cubbie - I suspect that the majority of bikes will be sports bikes....

Have you tried, recently, living without the use of a bank card (either credit or debit) and cheque book? It's extremely difficult. I've been trialling such a method for the last week, not from choice but from stupidity - if you lose your bank card, for some bizarre reason, it takes the bank 7 to 10 working days to make you a new one. Ok, so you can withdraw cash from any branch by using your passport as ID, but then you try eeking out the cash - no flexible friend in your pocket to help should you spend too much, and how much is too much, how much cash should you be carrying around in your pocket - oh, and that's another thing, try finding a cheap petrol station with is manned these days! Obviously the manned (or womanned) ones have to be dearer because they have to pay that man, or woman. Still, on the 7th day, my new card arrived. Now I just need the new PIN which I'm told, will be arriving under seperate cover. Shhhh.

Having a credit/debit card makes life so much easier in some cases.....but the old fashioned ways work just as well....such as a person to pay at the pump.

The BikeSafe course, is it like a safety course to teach you better/ improved skills while riding or better survival skills for dealing with the gormless, sightless trolls that occupy space on the roads now?

And a bikesafe course is...? For those of us who don't know...Is it a safe riding course that allows you an insurance discount or somethin'? You know at one time banks could issue a temporary card made up at the bank...but now they seem to want to make the whole thing as unpleasant as possible. A friend of mine is going through the same thing here.

Guys, the Bikesafe course is designed to improve ones riding skills. More to write about it, but also got to do a snippet for Old Bike Mart so can't give it all away!
