    is that Ballyvaughan ? I don’t recall the sign but the distances seem consistent. fantastic part of the world but you don’t have to spend a long time there to realise Father Ted isn’t a sitcom but a fly-on-the-wall documentary

    ...it's a long, long way from there to here. And gets further day by day....

    Cafe to the right of the sign.

    Nice place for cycling though.

    That's so odd! The distance is even accurate and in miles, so it's not like someone stole the sign and decided to put it up for a laugh (odd enough) but must've had it made!

    Civray and Downham are twinned. There was probably some presentation that I don't remember. As you say, it is odd and somehow seems no less odd each time I ride past it.

    The reverse exchange is next to some road signs, but they're not strange and it's not one:

    I know it's a point of honour in Wales that everything is bilingual. So I can only assume that one line of the road sign is in English French and the other in Welsh French...

    One from yesterday's ride, out near the fabulously-named "Foul Anchor": "PLEASE DIP HEADLIGHTS WHEN SHIPS APPROACHING". I don't know if the flashing corner markers are triggered by ships or headlights.
