Pannus de grysanto

Writing in the 1920s about the upper reaches of the Seaton Charles Henderson says “In 1301 the Assize Rolls (No 118) record that one Adam Trota passing the Water of Seythyn, near Retcradek [Rosecraddock], met Alice, the daughter of Matilda of Miriefeld, carrying a pannus de grysanto, for the sake of which he drowned her in the river and escaped with her property.”

A beautiful old tressle in Alabama, near Indian mounds. If it can hold THIS bike, it's gotta be sturdy!

VMCC Ride In



This month’s VMCC ride-in at Kit Hill was well attended given the icy weather.

In the first photograph we see Monty modelling the All Blacks’ new riding ensemble. With his back to the camera Monty has kindly raised his helmet visor so that we can use it to draw a bead on the three dark shapes silhouetted against the silver streak in the middle distance. The three dark shapes are some flats in Plymouth and the silver streak is the River Tamar at Plymouth Sound. Somewhere on a straight line between Monty’s helmet and the flats is the Tamar Bridge. You can see it easy if you have any strength in your imagination. And don’t let me see anyone using a magnifying glass.

An interesting bridge near St. Petersburg, Russia. What do you think, can the middle part be lifted for big boats to pass underneath? Looked that way...

Nether regions

The fruit for the evening’s cherry clafoutis having been stoned we set off for England in the rain. Crossing and recrossing the border at the Nether Bridges complex on the A388.

Couple of photos of bridges taken over the years.

Above Bear Creek saddle between the north and south forks of the Walla Walla River April 1994. We hit snow within 1 mile of the bridge and had to turn around.


Somewhere in Costa Rica taken back in March 2002


Bridge over Lake Koocanusa in Montana on the way to Roosville and the USA/Canada border to start the Continental Divide Route in September 2009

Talking What is it with bikes & bridge photos??

I spent the better part of an hour enjoying these...so, being a new inmate here at the asylum, I thought I should enter a couple of mine:

Two-part image...





The only bit of pavement for 30-odd miles - bridge over San Pedro River, along Redington Rd, Pima Co., AZ [note: Wings do NOT make good trail bikes...even when the road is decently-graded!]


Photo used for a Tag game played on another forum...bridge is rarely used, and is over 80 years old.
