 ???

Is everyone else seeing a photo of the front end of Roy Macdonald's Challenge Fujin here or is it just my fondleslab behaving very, very oddly?

Yeah, funny looking bottom bracket, and I'm not sure how the swan attaches to all that carbon fibre...   :D


(No, I've got the bridgepr0n.  The Fujin's where it's supposed to be, over in the RSS section of Thunderbollocks.  It's probably your fondleslab doing something odd.)

Seven Arch Bridge at Rivington


Is it just me or is that bridge incorrectly named?

Not just you, but I suspect originally the eighth arch was under the ground level on the right. Older images show the bank to be much higher up the other arches, there's a lot of money being spent restoring the terraced gardens so the eighth arch might well disappear again. It's a fantastic place.

Nice little bridge to nowhere over the Wyke Beck in Leeds, adjacent to the Wykebeck Trail (which runs from Roundhay Park to Temple Newsam) just north of the A58 Easterly Road crossing.  The trail doesn't actually cross the bridge, just run past the west end of it.

The closure of the former made us divert over this bridge:

In the Twerton area of Bath there's a narrow arch bridge which is marked 9'-0". I used to feel as if I should duck when riding through it on my motorbike.

....
That'd be Drypool bridge. Did you look the other way and see the shark-like Scale Lane bridge?
