New Milton Pedal Car Grand Prix

Filed under: UK,Wallpaper — admin @ 4:46 pm

For the last couple of years the New Forest Town of New Milton has played host to street racing of a very specialised kind. Not the banshee howl of Formula One, but the slightly more sedate and far more interesting pedal-powered variety. More than 25 Teams, of 4 pedallists entered, with the objective being to cover as many laps as possible in the allotted time of two hours. Entrants ranged from the manic to the comic – and covered most points between!

Go! … No, Stop!… No, Hang On!… Umm…

Last week I attended a 1-day business conference held in a hotel in the heart of London’s Canary Wharf area, east of the City and downstream of Tower Bridge. About 100 metres or so from the hotel, I came across the following rather bizarre sculpture, made from traffic light units.

I think the thing that amazed me most of all was the complete lack of accidents from the motorists who passed by. Obviously all were locals and are by now quite used to seeing it there. But on first glance it really does look utterly weird!
