The Manchester Student Safety TV Bike.  Well, that's what they call it on their
Facebook page but the pedants among us would point out that 'bike' is short for
bicycle and a bicycle of course only has two wheels.  You probably haven't failed
to notice that this contraption has four wheels, therefore, one feels, it would be
more accurate to call it a quadracycle.  Or something.

The new cafe extension to the Whitworth Art Gallery, which I
failed to get in as there was a long queue and life's too short.
