There was a thing on the radio earlier where somebody was being interviewed and saying that he had to go and buy a bicycle to be allowed on the ferry, because the ferry was full for foot passengers but still had room for cyclists .... about the stupidest bloody thing I have heard so far this year!

Apparently the French police told him not to come back. These lifts were free but there is obviously scope to make some money if you have all the correct coding etc! I'm guessing he didn't!
