Welsh speakers might understand, although my spelling is probably incorrect.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. What do you do to make a difference?

Your Urban myth .. or my truth ...

So .. we are working in Canton Depot near Cardiff ... we where doing upgrades on the trains power systems..
A company from Birmingham where fitting new wraps to the fleet ...new livery ... all in Welsh ..
All the words supplied by a Welsh advertising company in Cardiff ...
All was well .. the fleet made its way from Bristol to Swansea for over 8 months without a comment ...
Then ..
There was a fleet cascade ..
The old but reliable DMU's now went into Holyhead ...
UPROAR ... COMPLAINT ... White hell on terror mountain !!!!!

The Welsh on the trains wasn't WELSH ...it was Scots Gaelic ....

No one in South Wales noticed ......................

Alledgley ....... :lol:
I walk through the valley .... I am the shadow ... and I have no fear: For thou art with me.

I thought I saw a swallow holding a threaded needle in its beak. When it started singing I realised my mistake: it was not a swallow, but a tailor swift.

Everyone's ghast should get a good flabbering now and then.
