Yeah, I've got some very suspicious looks when cycling back and forth 
through residential areas. At least on a bike one can go a lot closer to 
the middle of the road during the day...

What did you say to the police? I suspect the Gardaí here wouldn't be 
too impressed by “I'm trying to map the area” - they'd probably think 
that even if I was telling the truth, that I was still up to no good...
