Leeds today: holidays, bikes, trains, CBBC, carfree, TARDIS, Corn Exchange, journos and waterfront.

Morning! It’s a short one today, it’s all a bit hectic over here!

We’re getting Tardis-coloured ‘telephone’ boxes – actually multimedia information and wi-fi hubs!

Round-up of the blogs from John Baron.

The proposed budget of HS2 has gone up by £10bn to allow a contingency. One wonders why they hadn’t included one before…

It’s one week to Sky Ride and everyone is being encouraged to wear yellow in support of next year’s Grand Départ of the Tour de France.

Speaking of which, should Leeds go car-free on Sundays? The City Talking poses the question.

CBBC comes to Leeds next month, and a few more details have been released.

Friday morning, so we’re popping South of the River: today, Jeremy worries about delegation and taking a holiday from the blog, something we all relate to here at BGL Towers.

While over on the Culture Vulture it’s pistols at dawn between bloggers and journalists.

Despite the sad loss of Anthony’s, the Corn Exchange is going full steam ahead with a celebratory weekend of its 150th birthday with a Grand Weekend of fun on 27-28 July. Some intriguing Victoriana… We’re looking forwards to this.

A quick reminder that it’s the Leeds Waterfront Festival this weekend. Granary Wharf, Thwaite Mills, New Dock… and all points between. Keep an eye out.

With the end of the month comes Penny University on Sunday, from 1.30 to 4.30 at Brewbar Espresso under the Art Gallery. Do come along!

Have a good weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!
