Royal County of Berkshire Show

Posted by ndm on 21 September 2008 in English (English)

Spent a glorious Saturday cycling to the Newbury Showground for the Royal County of Berkshire Show.

There's now some better connectivity to the showground via Hermitage -- and I've marked "the paths untrodden". The service roads for the showground have also been marked.

It was interesting that some of the previous OSM road names seemed to be more a vague description, than the actual road name -- luckily I've found the signposted names.

If anyone wants a fun cycle I recommend the lanes near Bucklebury -- some hills but nothing too steep.

Plus, I seem to have foun the countryside equivalent of the "Living Street" -- the "Quiet Lane".

Location: Chieveley, West Berkshire, South East, England, United Kingdom

I found a "quiet lane" on the Isle of Wight. Didn't seem to make much difference to the way the 4x4 drivers blasted past our bicycles.

There are several "Quiet Lanes" round here in Lancashire. Generally, they are (perhaps due to how they often link Much Nowhere with Much Snoring) low traffic roads. The Highway Code suggests that all traffic should expect to share the road. Sadly, 'vulnerable' road users seem to be the only people who are aware of this.
