    Have disturbed a few couples both daytime and at night but always old people never really young and fit.
    Nothing much else springs to mind right now

    Gay dogging session. It was so surreal I didn’t even realise what was going on for months later

    An owl, about a foot tall, stood stock still in the road staring me out as I approached at about 40mph down a v steep hill. It wasn’t going to move so I had to swerve.

    As I passed it, it’s head turned slowly through 180 degrees and twin beams of light from its eyes projected a message on the sky above me: Ur bik s Sarcin*

    * this last part isn’t true. It’s a Focus Cayo.

    Saw a pair of chavs rowing a bathtub down a disused canal!!

    Also a few smack heads in the bushes (I ride in nice areas me!)

    Surprised at the amount of porn shoots people have stumbled across though…

    Came across a goth on his own, mucking about with a weegie board. Further down the trail at the exit was a black Reliant Robin…it was stuffed full of cuddly toys 😯

    Assorted army battles, including setting off a trip flare in the dark, and standing in a field while they shot at each other for a few minutes from ethier side as if I wasn’t there!

    Roleplay types

    Doggers, one couple twice, once on the way down a trail, and still at it pedaling back up a half hour later!

    The condom makes the person feel its more real?

    Lowey?

    Re the singing on Rivi- I remember seeing loads of Nigerians(?) all dressed in white singing up there on a really early Sunday morning. I loved the vibe.

    Saw a full on naked bloke on the trail once, literally skipping along and whistling a merry tune. When he saw me he dived into the bushes and put his shorts on but to be honest I don’t know which of us was more startled. Each to their own I s’pose.

    There is a semi-feral bloke who walks around the Chase in various states of undress. Have seen him a few times wearing just a loincloth and there have been reports of him naked

    I saw what i thought was a lizard cross in front of me on the moors last weekend, it scarpered across just in front of me and was fairly quick so couldn’t get a propper look at it.

    I thought we don’t get lizards over here, maybe its a newt?

    It was black with yellow stripes or spots, had a quick search on google and this salamander came up, do we get them here in the UK?

    A couple of years ago I saw a Macaw flying overhead. It was quite startling and surprisingly large.

    Whilst gawping at it I realised I was straying in to the middle of the road whilst a car was doing the same thing the other way. We both swerved back to our own sides just in time.

    an orange canary

    a bloke having a shit.

    two women & a photographer on what I thought was a nice wedding dress shots, turned out to be a “vampire dress up” which I think might have turned interesting.. but I doubt it would have with 3 sweaty blokes starring.

    a ‘new’ trail I discovered led to a bloke in full drag (I cycled past quickly), which led onto a ‘shed’ with a bloke waiting just wearing a string vest… I turned around and cycled away sharpish!

    not quite strange, but very pleasing, whilst happy bimbling along the Thames (footpath), having been scowled at by ramblers, there up in a tree (20 ft or so), with a bushman(a saw type chaps) in one hand and the branch he was sawing at in the other, feet braced against the trunk was a very heavily built, tanned, check shirt wearing chap – when he saw me he took out the saw, waved, smiled shouted hullo and then carried on sawing

    Ah, the woods.

    Tho this:

    saw a skeleton in a burned out car once

    Is a bit harrowing.

    Worst I’ve seen is a mid 40’s couple at it at the top of a hill. Later saw them drive away in a rather nice nick audi quattro, what a guy.

    Is the ‘weegie board’ used for communicating with the souls of dead Glaswegians?? πŸ™‚

    There’s an American religious sect near us – kind of a more modern Amish. On a night ride, we spotted 2 of them pushing a 90 year old lady in a wheelchair into the woods at nearly midnight 8O. We keep expecting to find the rusty wheelchair in the woods and a pile of fresh earth!!

    You do get lizards all over the uk – can be reasonably varied colours inc. yellow/green, and look very “lizardy”, move fast.

    but nowhere near as distinctive as that salamander – not native or recognised alien species, so if you saw similar to that, no idea.

    There’s probably loads I can’t remember but the ones that stand out.

    Only the other night up Rivi, 2 people just stood there in the middle of the trail staring out at about 11 pm

    A witch on a cycle trail into bolton town centre

    A lady jogger having a pee at the side of a local Bridleway – that was awkward kind of ” hiya “

    Police helicopter directly above me as I went down a cheeky trail, yeah did get me a bit paranoid but think they were just taking the mick.

    Just saw a guy walking his medium size fluffy white dog. The dog was standing up right with his front paws on the handlebars of a trike scooter.

    Ah your probably right then, it was moving quite fast so couldn’t get a good look as in ran across in front of me, i was close to running it over. Here’s a common lizzard which seems a bit more likely…

    I once actually hit a couple at it in Crowthorne Woods, left tyre marks in the guys leg!

    Stumbled into a rave at Swinley, with the DJ set up under the bridge and as i ride down a steepish slope was faced with a tent across the trail and took the guy ropes with me, 2 blokes still off their faces chased me.

    Dog shrine off Tunnel Hill on the ranges, a tree covered with photos of a dog, its leads pinned on there and some dog based poetry.

    When i rode around Liverpool Street/ Moorgate in London in 2001/2002 used to see a guy in a 3 piece pinstripe suit, bowler hat, briefcase and brolly under his arm on a unicycle.

    tazzy are you not a cheshire local? was it up the cloud that? if so i knew of that person hung in the woods! πŸ™

    ive seen a few weirds things, up near a very very very high trig point i saw a group of 10ish monk type people in those orange robes (think GOURANGA from GTA πŸ˜† ) wiht nothing else on other than the robes, it was a cold winters day too, that was one of them WHAT THE FOOK moments with it being so remote and so random

    not seen anything really really weird though i must say, usual creepy type noises on night rides in winter in the dark (usually solo so shit your self territory) then in the summer months at night out till the same time at night and dont hear a sound (so clearly it is all in my head!)

    I guessed that was what it was, but only because I know it wasn’t a Lancaster – it has a single upright tail bit

    I saw a bunch of wizards, elves, warriors etc in the woods, the highlight being one bloke shouting “someone take this spell off me so I can fight!”

    A couple at it in the car (I assume so, either that or they were making tea as the windows were so steamed up!)

    Sadly no naked ladies of any description, they don’t seem to be around down south!

    White 7 series BMW stuck in the mud on a disused track. 7 of us offered to help push the car out. Very odd behavior from driver. We realized what was going on, when ‘he’ got out the car in full drag, white dress, high heels, lipstick, the works. Never did give us a clear explanation, just looked awkward & embarrassed throughout the whole episode.
