Clyde Tunnel Acoustics test?!?!

    Cycling through the tunnel last week I appear to have stumbled across an acoustics test being run in the Clyde Tunnel cyclepath/walkway. I can only assume that some future musical event is planned to take advantage of the admittedly very good acoustics.

    I'm not so sure about the performers that were hired for the testing though....

    I would have been fine, especially considering the blistering speed that I swooped past them.......ahem :wacko:

    I love the way your speed diminishes as you get closer to the source of the singing noise racket :sad:. Very sensible.


    There's tunnels on the TransPennineTrail in Yorkshire (somewhere - I forget the exact location :wacko:) and the acoustics and echoes are absolutely fantastic. I rode back through twice making silly noises :sad:.

    Yes, that's right. My speed reduced because I was wary of what was up ahead of me. Nothing to do with the incredibly steep climb. Oh no! :wacko:

    Dom will be along shortly to make comments about my heavy breathing, probably suggesting that the 'performers' could hear me coming before I could hear them... :sad:
