My work commitments send me all over London and I am always printing off maps to take with me on the bike. This works well for 99 percent of the time. I have recently discovered the joy of my Google Map satellite navigation application on my iPhone. Twice when I have found myself cycling in the wrong direction I got out the iPhone and hey presto I could see exactly where I was and make the necessary adjustment.
It’s great that I can pinpoint precisely where I am, but I also find it slightly unnerving in a Will Smith Gene Hackman ‘Enemy of the State’ kind of way.
