Playing with coloros camera on my one plus one phone.

Standard, '50mp' HD mode and super macro.
Close zoom in the bubbles on the coffee show the real strength of the 50mp mode.

There's been some changes in Wolverhampton city centre. Some of them seem just bizarre such as restricting cyclists from the only route from north to south, then preventing them cycling along the road the opposite direction, but forcing them onto the pavement across upstanding kerbs, sunken manhole covers and give way lines to rejoin the carriageway they could have stayed on.

Some people will tell you velomobiles are no good for urban situations. Admittedly you don't tend to squeeze through gaps in traffic like an upight, but it's doable.

But they are this:
Quick
Very visible.

I've spent the last week covering another job in Walsall, a very heavily congested town with bad road conditions .
First two days I went on my upright, took 45 mins for the 12 miles. Useful in that I could cut through some bits to avoid static queues of cars.
The town council recently removed a lot of the cycle facilities, thankfully they left two bus/cycle lanes intact.

The remaining days I went in the quest Velomobile. This commute was 27 minutes from door to door. Admittedly the traffic was lighter than it has been, but my slowest ride in the quest only took 34 minutes, it was also a longer route to avoid speed bumps.

Over 3km in 4 minutes in an urban situation with traffic lights isn't too be sneezed at, not certain why people think you need an engine to get everywhere...

Hmm 2 months to go on current work contract.
Time to find a new job, not having lot of success with it at the moment, not a lot about locally.

Can't cope with unemployment again!
