my 10 year old daughter is supposed to be doing a Bikeability thing at school today – I wouldn’t fancy taking a group of 10 year olds out in today’s weather!
Had a group of 10 year olds out for Bikeability today in Blackpool, sheltered back streets weren’t too bad, and the wind blew me home afterwards.Posted 4 years agooldboyMember
Do share, please, I’m all ears to hear your understanding as you mutter on about ‘health and safety police’ like a tramp shouting at pigeons.
If you know nothing about the way Brunnel overcame every obstacle thrown at him as he drove his railway westward then I can’t help you.Posted 4 years agoFunkyDuncMember

Had two attempts to ride home from Merseyside to North Wales on motorcycle. Way too dangerous. Taking shelter back in work :o(Posted 4 years ago
Good luck with that, the gusts are vicious, had to hang onto the building a few times trying to get to my car in not sunny Toxteth 😮singletrackmindMember
Missus has just phoned and says the M6 is closed Knutsford – M62 – I guess that’s Thirlwell? Doesn’t sound like fun. She’s having to drive back to Manc from Liverpool via Runcorn and the m56.
Looking at this map, she might be some timePosted 4 years agowoody2000Subscriber
That was bloody awful. 80 minutes to do 9.5 miles. Got turned back by firemen on one road as there was a power line down, decided to try get round on a footpath but ended up in the middle of a very muddy field. Then the road was blocked by a tree so cue loads of people trying to uturn, and **** every one else. Saw a van that had been hit by the tree when it fell, it was chopped in half nearly. Driver OK thankfully.
Stay safe everyone 🙂Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember

Clifton Suspension bridge (not) moving
Video here of the Clifton suspension bridge being very British and un-dramatic.
That is a pretty crappy video. There was another one on the local Beeb tonight shot from right next to the span, and it was gently twisting and flexing in the wind, and the steel plates at the expansion joints were moving all over the place. To see a bridge as solid as that being twisted by wind was pretty scary.Posted 4 years ago
