Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Yes. Very probably. :) can't recall seeing you though. Just got back from doing the mountains. Went for Cheshires highest peak first and got caught in a downpour. Leathers aren't waterproof and neither was my waterproof jacket. Shit. Trouble with hills is that you can't see the top if you are at the...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

L for lighthouse. Not very inspirational but another run up the Wirral peninsula trying to find a different route than when I did the beach. Main target was Leasowe lighthouse with New Brighton Lighthouse for a bonus DSC_0510.JPG New Brighton And DSC_0509.JPG Leasowe Mileage 108, cumulative 1082 Mou...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Abr challenge letter K for keystone. Again, trying to find an interesting target and settled for this bridge near Cardishead just outside Manchester. Apparently it used to carry 4 railway lines over the Ship Canal Not a clue where they went though. Keystone not very prominent. It's a bloody big brid...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

J for Junkyard. Again trying to find something a bit off the beaten track. Last nights voyage was a run down to Newport in Shropshire. As the crow flies the target Junkyard was only 21 miles away but by taking a convoluted figure 8 route and not doubling any part of the journey, I managed to stretch...

Re: Sprinster's A-Z Challenge.

I reckon you have only got 7 more letters to go.. The field of Christmas Trees was a good hint. I was wondering about that one..

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

G for golf club. Ignoring the weather warnings, last Saturday I headed South with sunshades on and no waterproofs just avoiding the exceptionally black clouds and downpours. My plan was to head down to Church Stretton but only got as far as South Shrewsbury when I hit the rain. Fortunately,a golf co...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Still plodding along. Last Saturday, in the rain and fog I headed out to Matlock and Darwin Forest to acquire my letter 'F'. Pretty uneventful but a really nice little jaunt over the Pennines along roads I didn't know existed. It was uneventful except for the idiot in the Black Audi who thought it w...

Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

E is for Estuary I hope. 2 attempts to get this far. Set off on Saturday but the bike died just outside Chester. First time it has let me down in 17 years. Had to be rescued but it was a simple fix. Broken alternator wire. Bugger. A bit of a rant. I am broken down. Seat off and the bike is on the pa...
