Crap you see on the side of the road
Apart from all of the tins, bottles, litter crap etc I saw a used ( full up ) Johnny along with a yard of tissue at the the edge of a quiet rode this morning whilst out with me niece for a training ride.Posted 8 years ago
Told her what I had seen so had to go back and check.
Bloody funny to see and had a laugh but really not that nice, litter does my head in, and some bloke most of done a months worth!!!
What is the worst you have seen?west kipperMember
What pi**es me off is the sheer amount of fly-tipping in verges. You'd probably never notice it at 50 mph in a car, but from a bike its really obvious.
…And no matter how remote the road, how far in the middle of nowhere, you'll always find used McDonalds cartons.Posted 8 years agosamuriMember
Gloves. I almost started a website called glove-roadkill.com which would show all the gloves and assorted garments found by the roadside. But then I remembered I had a life.
Worst thing though? We found a shooter once. Not an animal shooting shooter but a human shooting shooter, a pistol. Looked like a semi-automatic of some description to me but then I've never actually held one. I'm more used to rifles and shotguns.
Anyway, we phoned the police and they turned up astoundingly quickly. Really, we made the phone call and the first cop car was there almost as soon as we hung up. Bizarre really, cars kill three thousand people a year in britain and guns kill (from a quick search for 2009), 39 people a year but if we'd phoned up and told them we'd found a car we'd still be waiting there now.
What a strange and shitty world we live in.Posted 8 years ago

a pristine copy of 'transvestite today' on the road out of peaselake.
having inspected the contents as far as pages 5-6 it was left open at pages 3-4 and propped up in the verge so passers by could be shocked and appalled.Posted 8 years ago
there was that dead donkey on pitch hill around the same time, but that was trailside not roadside.swamp_boyMember
Way back when I was an estate forester we used to find all sorts of cr*p in the woods. One time I found an old radiator that a plumber had taken from my house the day before. Seeing as I knew where his next job was I took it along and gave it back.
Once other time what looked from a distance like a shop window dummy on the grass next to a byway near Stonehenge turned out to be a nice looking young woman nude sunbathing. Brightened up the day no end.Posted 8 years agoskidartistMember
As above the best people to call with fly tipped stuff is the council. My dad came across a pile of dumped plumbing scrap at a local nature reserve. Amongst it was an invoice. He called the council and someone was round like a shot. They traced the plumber who claimed he'd recently sold his van and that it was full of crap so the person that bought it must have dumped it. The council guy said thanks, then prosecuted the two of them.
My most recent weird find was a giant cuddly bunny.
As a youngster a friend of mine happened across a neatly folded pile of clothes, and a short distance away gentleman in basque, suspenders and high heals enjoying his own company. So he did what any right thinking young chap would do- nicked the clothes.Posted 8 years agoZedsdeadMember
I used to work surveying the trunk road network in Scotland. Man we found hundreds of weird stuff.
One day I was down a verge and found about 50 footballs! I stuffed as many as I could into the survey car and then handed them out to anyone who wanted one back at HQ.Posted 8 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
Once saw a huge amount of bog roll flapping about on the verge. Some of it was clearly used. I suspect it had something to do with the empty box in amongst it. The box was about 18 inches tall by 6 inches square. It's contents (thankfully missing) was apparantly some sort of butt plug. Made my eyes walking just thinking about it. It was obviously huge 😯
On another occasion was out walking with the family in the woods. Emerged into a clearing covered in rubbish, nappies, bog roll, food waste and sh!t. Appeared to be recently vacated by 'travellers' Filty bastidsPosted 8 years ago
