- Silly Place names you HAVE to ride to!
Cold and dark outside and peeing down, wind blowing my soul away, its time to get the OS maps out. Just planning a dales trip, seen a couple of silly place names. The MTB oriented “Smear Bottom Lane”(a warning to be ridden on dry days only!. And the, ahem, onanisticly titled “Tossit well”!!! Cheered me up, anybody any other crackers?Posted 6 years ago
NB; Both on Yorkshire Dales south and west 1:25000. Grids SE924641 and 961586 respectively.
when riding from London to Munich back in 2003 (that really crazy hot summer!) i took a 30km detour so that i could go to the Bavarian town of ****.
in fact, there are several mountains called ****, too…
where i used to live in northern Bavaria there were two town next to each other called Busendorf (tit-village) and Poppendorf (shag-village). that always raised a smile.
passed through a town called Schnelldorf a few weeks back. quite ironic as we were on an ICE train at the time. (Schnelldorf – Quick-village. ICE trains are the equivalent of the French TGVs).Posted 6 years agoCregMember
Near where I work we have “Randy Bell End”.
There are two competitions
1) When giving walkers directions advise them to “climb on to Randy Bell End and work your way along it” without cracking up laughing
2) If heading in that direction on bike or on foot return to the pub afterwards and say “Good going on Randy Bell End today” or similar
Keeps us entertained for most of the year. 😆Posted 6 years ago
