Though given the weather was just like BRITAIN i.e. 9 degrees and raining I suspect the said bear was at home with a nice cup of cocoa.

The only one I spotted on St. Peter's Street in Colchester's Dutch Quarter.  I'd hate to see a 'long vehicle' anywhere in that part of town.

Erk!

The amount of debris on the cycle path looks about right though, if a tad damp...

I think it's part of NCN1.
It's the underpass under the A947, North of Aberdeen:

Back when dinosaurs stalked the LaBrea Tar Pits the IHPVA held a sprint event in one of LA's "rivers".  Always the risk of falling foul of a Terminator in a stolen lorry if you muck about down there.
