TOTD thinks you’d have to be completely bonkers to ride a motor bike along this vertiginous mountain path.

TOTD has walked some fairly hair raising footpaths before (Sharp Edge on Blencathra comes to mind), but this second clip of a path in Andalucia looks seriously frightening.

Barclays Cycle Hire animation

February 7, 2011

The Barclays Cycle Hire scheme in London allows you to take a cycle from a docking station, ride it where you like and then return it for the next person to use.

Here’s a lovely animation that uses data supplied by Transport for London to show the flow of these hire bikes during the 4th October Tube strike in 2010.
