Oh wow, that is just ace .... where did you park the truck, and how many miles did you cycle there and back ?

JokerXL says:

Parked in the port, next to tonight's boat.
Nobody dun told me it was only just down the road!
About half an hour.
I cycled right out to the ones with heir feet in the sea (tide was all the way out) followed by a big yellow Landrover with some worried beach-guards in it.

you can't just lean your bike up on Art, can you?

540air says:

Yeah, course you can, makes it "working art" :)

beth says:

hmm is it leaned up ? perspective is suggesting to me that it's not. Unless that bike is massive or the angle is making it look massive, because those sculptures are man size - Gormley size even.

cariadus says:

Yes, I was wondering about that too.
Anyway, fantastic photo.
So next time you visit us you're going to cycle up some nice hills in Barry are you? :)

those orange wheel reflectors? they're illegal in England they are! (I'd LOVE to see someone arrested for it though!) Bet your brakes are opposite too. Bloody Europeans.

Viv says:

I told you it was just down the road :) !!!!!!!!!

Glad you made it - did wonder if you ever put your bike in the truck

And Swamprose - sure that they have had many experiences including regularly being p***** on - dogs are allowed on that beach, limpets nestle wherever, they are decorated

Yes you did tell me that Viv, I just don't trust it when people say "just down the road", very subjective measurement that.

How can anything so innocent (and effective) be "illegal" Hobo? In Holland they're compulsory, if you don't have a reflective stripe all the way around the tyre. And yes, our brakes are on the right (?) where they belong!

I shall NOT be cycling up your road Cariadus, down it, maybe, once, but never up.

It is indeed leaning up against the statue, there were no lamp-posts and I don't have a side-stand, what can you do?? The wide angle lens makes it look a little odd in perspective and this particular example of Gormley's physique was up to it's knees in sand.

540air says:

hobo - they're illegal? What on earth for, or is that one for the health and safety nazis? :)

JXL - You mean your back brake is on the right and front on the left? Good man!! :)

JokerXL says:

My back brake is on the front and the front brake on the back 540.

they're orange. English ones are white. It's not illegal to ride with them, but it's illegal to sell a new bike with them on, they have to be replaced with white ones. While I agree with any and everything which aids the visibility and safety of cyclists, I hate it being legislated about. Cyclists are reasonable people; no-one ever started a war from the back of a bike.
