One of Bristol's finest sections of cycle path. Note from the car coming towards you that this is a bicycle contraflow!

This is a really nice google maps app which pulls in data from the highways agency and presents it in an interactive interface.

You can see near-realtime vehicle speeds, vehicle flow rates and it even displays the text from all the signs above the motorway.

This must have been a monumental effort. Major cap doff to its author, Adam Granger.
 
Lots of fun with JavaScript making this live visualisation of UK highways agency open government data on Google maps. Tech write-up to follow. http://adamish.com/lab/roads/

Nom nom nom. A nice breakfast to have waiting for you when you get up. Depending on how tart the frozen berries are, this might need a bit of honey or brown sugar in the mix.

GCSE Computing MOOC launched by OCR - Definitely something worth doing, but it looks like there's a long way to go.

There's not much content online yet and the videos I've seen are a bit mumbly and unintelligible (even to someone who understands the concepts already!) It would be nice if the content could be improved by peer review on the teacher side with teachers and non-teachers contributing.

Big fan of this recipe. The pic doesn't do it justice...

It's a straightforward, unsurprising Chinese takeaway: your choice of protein covered in your one of many intensely flavoured, slightly sticky sauces, and accompanied by your preferred type of rice. If it's your nearest takeaway, use it. If not, don't bother!

A slightly nicer version of fish and chips than you'll get in your average chippy. The fish is fresh and the batter has never been soggy in my experience. Portion sizes are about right (although it's always a bit of pot luck at a chippy when it comes to the size of the fish) It can be a fairly long wait at times as they are quite popular.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a competition prize and had an amazing time. The castle has been decorated with incredible attention to detail as you can see from the photos on their website. The place was child friendly and had a few families in when we visited, but there is so much space (including a games room for children) that you don't feel like there are kids under your feet. Our room was directly over the front door, with fantastic views and tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture. The bathroom had the country-house feel you'd expect with an olympic-sized rolltop bath and enough floorspace to work on your ballroom dancing moves. We didn't eat dinner there, but the breakfast was fantastic - a really good full english or a choice of 2 or 3 other lighter meals as well as the usual cereal/fresh fruit/stewed fruit/yoghurt. To top it off there were freshly baked flapjacks and muffins every morning to tempt you into gluttony. There are plenty of walks close by (it's Cumbria - you weren't expecting conurbations) and there's a popular coast-to-coast cycling route nearby so lots of established cycleways. We didn't have much difficulty finding cosy local pubs to rest out weary feet either. Definitely recommended!

Had an excellent black pudding scotch egg. The staff were very friendly despite it being quite busy at the time. Nice selection of cakes.
