As part of making the web a greater part of the way I work, I spent Friday morning with Matthew Stibbe. His blog Bad Language is a great resource for all writers.
I am planning to take 2 months away from Microsoft in the summer. So I visited http://www.ctc.org.uk/. I am a member of the Cyclist Touring Club and they have a great library of routes in the UK, Europe and around the world. I plan to riding just a few thousand KMs.
