Well Sunday's really but who's counting? Bridges and bikes do not mix well, unless when said bridge was erected they install a bike slide. So push it up, look at the view and slide it back down again

there was not enough room at the side to be able to ride it, so it had to be pushed. Shame it might have been fun

I think they do that deliberately!

Looks like a lovely view...I take it you talked the Mr. into going out into the rain then?

Geo - sure did. But i think he regretted it, and not because of the rain. Only about 5 miles into the ride we came to the bottom of a steep climb, my back was not feeling good and i had requested we did a ride without hills (in Yorkshire??) and i did shout i am ashamed to say. I did apologise when we got home. And guess what? Half way thorough the ride the back ache eased off.

So, BB, let me say publicly that i was very horrid to you and i beg for your forgiveness. And just in case i haven't told you today - I do love you.

That's a cool idea, I would have been tempted to ride it down!

These bike slides are a relatively new idea in the UK - they were talked about at the Sustrans Ranger meeting I went to, so it's a possibility that they'll be springing up all over the place. I think they should be placed centrally so that the more adventurous can ride down them if they want to, and they could have a loop at the bottom!
