About time this was resurrected before 2013 is over...recognising that Claire's picture trumps everyone....48 hairpins and a beacon bidon.

For me that's 2nd prize sorted though - assuming you rode up all those hairpins?

Brilliant Barry something to aim for in the UK! Is the shelter etc just for walkers and cyclists?

Yes, Dave, all just for walkers and cyclists. It used to be tree lined but the floods and erosion swept them away (and part of the floating bikeway further downstream!). so they have installed more man-made shelter.
This particular bikeway was a victim of of its own success with occasional bikeway rage incidents due to heavy traffic, so it has been significantly widened in the past 10 years.

I've also noticed some interesting new bike maintenance stations around town which I will take a pic of and post.

Was doing some reps up my local hill climb here in Brisbane during the week, and was suddenly struck by a place name at the bottom of the climb:

Simpson Falls

:shock:
