    OK This is a little game which had a lot of success on another (car) forum that I used to be on.
    Basically someone sets a challenge which is to take a picture of your bike next to a certain type of monument/landmark/building/interesting feature/anything curious really. The first person that validly fulfills the challenge gets to set the next one. It has to have your bike in the photo, and the person that set the challenge adjudicates whether it passes the challenge.

    might not take off, but give it a go...

    first one: my bike, next to an ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE snail!

    so the first challenge is to take a picture of your bike next to a similarly massive (or just oversized) animal.

    and bonus points for identifying the location of the above snail.

    I don't think our local Costco will allow me in for a snap next to the massive (we're talking 7ft +) polar bear 'cuddly toy'... shame really.
     
  6. Heavens i'm scraping the barrel here...
    Not exactly what you envisaged bonj but here is a picture of a small fake animal sitting on a bike

    And here is a picture of my other half talking to a cow whilst riding a bike.

    That's about as animaly as my bike photos get.

  8. that's not a snail, it's a shell. i see no evidence of the living part of it, our readers demand proof.

    I've seen that snail from the train south to my Mum's or sister's - so I guess it must be near the railway line in the Sheffield? area, but can't remember where exactly...

    Is it the Shell petrol station at the bottom end of Bramall Lane?

    Can't offer you a photo in return, but I believe the snail is just to the east of Chesterfield station.
     
  13. Ahh Chesterfield. Home of large twisty things...!

    I've got a good one but you'll have to wait 'till next week when I can go past it with camera. It's ferocious.
     
  15. is it a 50ft redshank?
