^^ Cheers scooter. I spotted this in the corner of my garage...

High time it saw the light of day - and it's permitted as "exercise".

Well, what a beautiful morning it was today...

I picked up a number of samples from Royal Stoke and delivered them into several facilities in Birmingham - a couple of hospitals and the National Blood Service.

I was a surreal journey with barely any traffic on the motorway and mostly deserted roads in Birmingham. Normally, I'm filtering in between the traffic to make progress but today the biggest challenge was to stay within the speed limits.

The weather was glorious:

Thanks, Lance - although I do not want to give the impression that my motives are purely altruistic! I enjoy riding the bike as much as I get satisfaction from helping out.

My group has different SLA's with various hospital trusts, but we are basically 24/7 for most services already. For my part though, I stick to day shifts (7 till 7) during the week, as a lot of the riders have to juggle full time jobs so are more limited with their availability.

In fact, we have just released a new "information" video...
