wow! not many threads come up that i feel that i have to reply.....but damn. i ride a lot of mt bikes and trials. gotta say im not big on the roadies either but that changes my perspective a little bit. never would have thought a road bike could handle drops like that (could be built up for more than climbing hills.) very cool tho.

I realize it wasn't really that narrow, but riding across that bridge did it for me.

it's hard to imagine the hours and hours of seat time to have balance like that on skinny road wheels on 10' hucks.

That was shot in my home city of Bristol, the drop the other side on to a railway line is pretty damn big I can tell you!

I was wondering where it was. It actually made Bristol look O.K.!!!

There are some great areas of Bristol, as well as some not so great parts... unfortunately the motorway passes through or near some of the 'less attractive' areas and unfortunately these are what most people will only ever get to see.

Where abouts is 'Being Human' filmed? It looks cool but 'edgy' (if I can use such language?). "Holby" looks shit everywhere though....

The only time I've actually seen Bristol with my own eyes though, is like you said, from the M5 (on the way to Landrake). A long way to go for us but bliss for my boy.

Can't say I've ever watched Being Human or more than two episodes of Holby in my life to be honest. I suppose they must have filmed all over the city, depending on the plot. The BBC has quite a big presence in Bristol (mainly Natural History) so they film all sorts of stuff here. They did shift most of the TV Drama's to Cardiff about four or five years ago though.

If you ever have cause to visit, try Clifton, Cotham and the Harbourside, or Montpellier/Stokes Croft for a multicultural, bohemian kinda atmosphere. They're all quite central.

Little fact for the Americans here; In 1497 John Cabot embarked on a voyage from Bristol to Asia onboard The Matthew, but instead arrived at Newfoundland and therefore became the first person to discover North America (not Christopher Columbus). An exact sea-going replica (shown here) was built in 1997 to retrace the route.

I always thought Bristol was a great place, I met a load of people from Bristol in Italy in Feb, they were moaning about how crap it was, If they think Bristol is a load of crap they should see Coventry! laughing
