An excellent ride indeed, with a very good turnout!

'Twas a strange pub afterwards… other than our group the place was empty, and it felt very much like we were rudely interrupting the barman’s quiet saturday afternoon by buying drinks and food from him… :slight_smile:

My exercise for the day was riding up the really steep hill from the pub to the start of the bridge in one go. Cor, my legs!

The weather was good too; it appears to have been raining all day up here in Yeovil, two hours drive away.

Finally, in case anyone is wondering about the corpse in the middle of the path in one of the photos, it was just a photographer (one of two!) getting some photos in from a funny angle…



Thanks for clearing that up Phil I though they died and I looked for the uni but it wasnt there :astonished: I thought you ran down some one. haha

For a look at the online report of the Calstock unicycle clubs Tamar bridge ride take a look at


Its a very long address so you might need to cut and paste!

I havn’t got my pics on line yet. sorry.
If any one has a good clear pic that would look good in Black and White from the ride, could you let me know please?

What was the distance of this ride?

Distance depended on how many times you crossed the bridge, typicaly twice if you live in Cornwall, 4 times if you live anywhere else. Each crossing is about 1848 feet or 600m (ish) . So, no, not the longest ride in history, but for some of the riders who took part a real achievement to ride that far in one go with out falling off or taking a rest.


nice set of steps at the end… shame about the security guard…
