The yellow bikes of Melmerby (6)

  • Description

    "At least seven yellow bikes have been installed at various points round Melmerby village in anticipation of the coming of the Aviva Tour of Britain 2015. Stage 5 of the Tour on September 10th runs from Prudhoe in the Tyne valley to the finish on Hartside Pass, the second highest A road in England. The sting in the tail is the gruelling climb on the A686 from Melmerby up to the summit, which gains 414 metres in elevation over a distance of 7.9 km. This bike is mounted above the porch of the Shepherds Inn on the Ousby road." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2015.
