Winged Wheels
« on: September 01, 2009, 11:15:28 pm »
I thought we had a thread about this already, but my Search Fu is not strong enough, so here goes:

At Mount Pleasant Farm campsite, Stewkeley, we saw this.  I'm guessing bought in rather than 'awarded', but it's a winged wheel, nonetheless.



There was a cool sign for Butterfly, too:

That fungus looks nice 'n' cosy.



There was a derelict petrol garage not far from my home a few years back where I liberated a nice enamel sign of Bibendum.

There is one on the wall of a pub at Lawton cross roads near to Alsager,Stoke-on-Trent.

There is a specific thread somwhere on the CTC website regarding winged wheel locations.

There's a big one at the junction of the A361 and A417 in Lechlade.

Erm. Eh? Why would anybody do that. WHY? Why take a list of text links, turn it into an image, then put an image map against it. What the hell were they thinking?  :o

Not in it's original location, this one was spotted on the fence at someone house in Scotland. The house was used for a control on Ower The Edge and Oot Ta Carrick. The owners put on a splendid spread and were very very good hosts and controllers, obviously keen cyclists.

Its a fairly successful and well-received site that works well enough. Looks like there's a "Wheel" on this thread that I've not had reported before though.
Let us do this thing that is set out before us!

Someone tell Clarion - there's a Clarion sign on the same building as a winged wheel -

Hereford Worcester 1



Also an NCU sign.

That's well worth a visit, though the photo doesn't look awfully recent.  Hope they're still there.

CTC is trying to quietly forget the winged wheel in favour of the newer logo.  However, it is being kept alive by a few stalwarts - plus if CTC wants to use its powers to erect road signs, they have to bear the winged wheel symbol.

You can get cloth badges with tee winged wheel on them - but not from CTC directly.  I don't think they produce the winged wheel version of the 'Cyclists Welcome' signs/stickers any more.
