I've loved getting badly-targetted advertising, on Twitter, based purely on the fact I'm in a country. Out of my normal advertising bubble.

Having an all-day-breakfast in Donegal city. Will head for Sligo this evening.

The cycle route was closed due to a huge herd of cows so I went back to the main road (which was well graded and smooth).

I've had to lock my bike up in the first time since... not sure. Had to dig out my bike lock key.
