How about Arenig Fawr from Llyn Celyn - but not that far from the brickworks.

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

Wales has it right there, signs in both languages In the north, Welsh is first Cofio Tryweryn! I'm a bit sceptical about the wisdom of putting important safety information on bilingual signs with the less common and more verbose language first. I went through a few ARAFACH NAWR signs painted on the...

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

I think your picture is quite old? Or very recent? The image was taken in 2008, but I have just looked at a Streetview image dated a few months ago and can see no major changes. I was puzzled by the Bal... sign someone referred to for a shop in Dingle, so I tried to find another image with it on, b...

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

A Google search for 'Foxy John's Bar' will lead to an establishment in New York, USA. This Foxy John's bar, hardware shop and bicycle shop is on this side of the Atlantic, but where? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49822583156_c68dc6aebf_b.jpg I think your picture is quite old? Or very recent?

Re: VERY slow Cadence/rpm

35 at best is slow, but as other have said, it doesn't matter if you're achieving what you want. If you doubt the computer, it's easy enough to check with a kitchen timer, just count your pedal strokes for a minute. It's possible the sensor is missing some strokes, which may make a nonsense of other...

That was my first thought. I'm sure there's more than one nice tea shop, but very little motor traffic on Skye?

Possibly, but looks a bit flat for those counties to me. No sign of a water course, though possible dew pond at 8 o'clock to earthworks.

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

Not sure but I think it's tidal - the water line of the far right hand side is horizontal rather than following the slope of the road I think you are looking at a shadow of a tree falling there. The OS marks the watercourse as non-tidal. I was only there on the one occasion, so I cannot speak from ...

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

Perhaps I might offer another unusual sign - and a highly debatable one.... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49817507371_1ca5fe2b46_b.jpg Not sure of the rules now, I guess it's like 20 questions. Stone looks flinty. Narrows it down quite a lot but still quite a big area, I'll guess south east E...

Re: Face masks: Why? Why not?

I don't wear a mask because I don't have the ability to make one or access to one that I think might be effective. I'm sympathetic to the argument that they reduce spread to others, so I'm pleased when I see others wearing one, because I think on balance it will reduce the probability of me catching...

Re: Not much changes

Curious thing is, if you look at the demo graphics of cyclists, they tend to be higher social status. Maybe you should look again, or broaden your research outside the narrow band you and I probably both occupy, it's a myth. EDIT - This might be a good place to start https://labourcycles.org/2018/0...

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

I posted Inagua on the other Forum and we got there pretty readily via clues etc - in fact I've done it a couple of times from different perspectives :D As say, it's a much longer-established thread and there's a collaborative approach with the most obscure ones being the most coveted. It's rare th...

Correct, Cyril. I hope you don't mind, I've posted another one, but there's no reason why we shouldn't have 2 going at the same time, so over to you if you have one ready.
