Blogging from the Murcia region of Spain until early June, when I return to the Highlands of Scotland for a few months

"Welcome to Scotland" ...
... but take care you don't inadvertently stray onto a motorway-standard highway when entering our lovely country if you are 'driving' under pedal-power! No, not even if you're undertaking a ride from Land's End to John O'Groats on a charity fund-raising effort for a young disabled girl and a Hospice she attends. Obviously this cyclist had to be taken off the motorway pronto, for the safety of himself and others (and Jamie Barton, the cyclist involved, agrees), but I do tend to agree that the punishment meted out is a little harsh in the circumstances.
