Having a map of toilets is useful for everyone

Yes, I generally know where there are bogs because occasionally I need to find one in a hurry.
I carry wet wipes as can be caught short in quite a sudden way.

I apologise for the detail.

I noticed ctc magazine this week has an article about very short/tall/heavy riders and illustrates this with (amongst others) a woman who is 5’3” - the average height of a woman in the uk! The article is pretty good, but it does make you wonder when an average woman is regarded as extreme by the ctc

I didn't believe that statistic and went off and Googled - and marylogic is correct. I'm 5'7" and have always felt that was "average-ish or maybe just over average".

I said to my husband once "You may be a short man but you are not a short person." - he is 5'5" which is short enough to be a hassle when buying clothes (especially trousers) but he can pretty much walk into a bike shop and walk out with a bike to fit.
