    Can’t post a pic as I’m on my phone, but Sankey viaduct near Earlstown.

    Probably the first railway viaduct in the country and I’m (my employers) are in the process of bring sodding great steel structures to it in order to electrify the line

    Copley viaduct today catching the sun nicely for the whole ride, a regular route which I am now calling The Rifle Run.

    Copley Viaduct is great but the real gem is the cricket pitch sandwiched between the viaduct, the river and the other railway line. Your photo captures the new pavilion building too. A Great place to drink beer whilst watching others run around like madmen

    Arthington Viaduct on Leeds to Harrogate line – a mile or so from where I grew up.

    This is from the canal today. The new pavillion is great. I’ll definitely try it next summer.

    Viaduct and more impressive aqueduct on the west side of Linlithgow, which will be incorporated into my ride too thanks to this three. Sorry no photos just now.

    This is my turning point for a 10km run, its exactly 3.1 miles from my house. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Its had modern brickwork done to strengthen it unfortunately, and it looks crap over the road, but the rest of the viaduct is stunning.
    It cuts a line between Edinburgh and West lothian.

    DavidTaylforth, that’s Ulverston/Plumpton innit? We used to jump off that as kids, how we survived childhood I’ll never know.

    Here’s a little one, near San Sebastian. Probably rideable if you’re not scared of heights like I am, although I have ended up riding onto it when not concentrating on the trail.

    And this one, you ride on top of or beside the pipe for about 10km, hardly descending but utterly engaging with some quite nasty exposure.

    Barmouth. I believe its on the Bryan Chapman 600k route.

    Kinzua is a few hours from where I live.

    About 10 years ago, a lot of it fell down. While they were fixing it! Now it looks like this:

    Edit – I wonder if Red Bull knows about it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Monsal Head just down the road – ridden over that hundreds of times and it’s always beautiful:

    And you also get to ride over this at Miller’s Dale:

    I live right next to that viaduct globalti, that’s a fantastic photo- taken from the top of ‘Whalley Nab’ if I’m not mistaken?

    I’ve got a very similar one on my living room wall. Wonderfull part of the world!

    Random fact from an old railway book, when they where building Stokport Viaduct, they where using horses and carts, horses dont like going backwards, and one reversed its load to fill in the viaduct piers, and went a bit to far, cart and horse fell down inside viaduct pier, and theyre still there today, no way and waste of money to get them out.

    Some fantastic victorian engineering around.

    Yes JP, I took the photo from a field half way nown the Nab one snowy winter’s day when we went toboganning. What I would love to get is the steam train crossing the viaduct in snow, though I think it might be an impossible shot because it always comes at dusk.
