Britain's Rudest Place Names

Whilst trawling the internet I stumbled upon a list of Britain's rudest place names. I thought it would be a good idea if ourselves and anybody else who reads this blog happen to be in the area of any of these places, stop and take a photo of ourselves/yourselves and your bikes (if you have one) next to the sign post and email it over to us. It'll be interesting over a period of time to see just how many places on the list get visited. I'll update this blog entry with pictures as and when we get any.

Mike, you have given me a great idea, I'm going to try and get my photo taken at as many of these, and other such place names.

Good excuse for a ride!

Rig, I would love to be a fly on the wall when you tell your wife you spent your day in Lady's Hole.

Just duck as you say it, with a bit of luck she will miss!

I am familiar with Nob End but that is all I'm saying...
