Took a trip down to Hastings today, it's a traditionaly thing that thousands of bikes go down there. Despite the horrible weather it was still fairly busy, probably about 10-15000 bikes there. Hopefully next year will be brighter and busier. Felt sorry for the people that were in cars, they didn't stand a chance, everywhere was packed with bikes. The police closed the big carpark on the seafront especially for bikes, they were parked on the highstreet, on pavements, in the cross hatching in the middle of the road and even on the beach.
