When I saw this really odd bicycle with slate wheels in a back garden  on my recent trip to the Lake District, I thought ” Aha! Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge!

In truth, it isn’t really so surprising as the famous Honister Slate Mines are just along the road, but it’s fun anyway. Whilst it might be a bumpy ride, whoever rides it will never need to worry about getting a puncture.

Oh, this photo is really something else, very interesting and makes you wonder about the story behind it.

    Yes you’re right. It does. Thanks for visiting.

Very curious bicycle, but I think it is lethal for your spine and other body parts. The red is lovely, it looks as if it is recently painted.

    Yes, spine and “other bits”! Ouch! Thanks for your comments.

I sure wouldn’t want to ride the bike. 😀
