Excuse the LOW resolution photos, the meeting was certainly HIGH resolution, I can report to you. Just a few impressions (in temporal order).
After a soggy start (here in front to St Nicholas, Newcastle's Cathedral)
Things did brighten up (for the rest of the weekend - and in all respects), when it promptly was time to get off our bikes to push them down Northumberland Street (situation report here and here)
Canny view from the meeting room, overlooking said shopping street (and top end of tarmac-heavy Pilgrim Street too)
Some impressions from the second day out:
John Dobson Street
John Dobson Street at St Mary's Place - hopefully the Dutch will sort out this messy junction in November, no pressure. Civic Centre (seat of Newcastle City Council) in blue-sky background.
Great North Road, going North going from 30 with path (let down by Blue House roundabout - only navigable with a philosophy-degree education or insanity ensues)...
...to 30 on road
...deteriorating to 40 on road aaaargh
Brunton Lane towards Great Park (we had just past the wonderful Land of Rising Bus Bollards where we observed a restraint in car use)
Arty short of horrible Percy Street
Yes, we do have ASLs - they turn out to be good locations for photos. And meeting places bike folks. Spot the odd one out.
