|A lot of new waterproofs were baptised today.|
It was a small band but we had so much to talk about. One of the biggest motivators apparently for any movement when you feel the world or in this case the leaders don't necessarily care is to recharge with like-minded individuals. There were a small-holder from Climate Stewards, an author of a book about Peak Oil and another Eco-congregation instigator, an editor of Green Christian, keen touring cyclists, with different experiences but a very common goal and ethos. And the links were astonishing. A couple turned out to be the parents of a last owner of the Hub Cycle shop in Shirley, Southampton, a shop with a great atmosphere and customer care. Another cycling group on the ferry from Westminster RC Justice and Peace Group, turned out to have two wind turbine designers on it besides myself and of course we'd met sometime before (small world). Seasickness was a bit of a problem with a Force 8 gale, but usually not bad enough to stop the conversations!
