Animals on bikes

Between Yeoval and Cumnock in the central west of NSW the locals have been having fun, providing dangerous distractions on a road which doesn’t allow much opportunity to pull off. We first noticed bikes suspended high in trees years ago – this stretch is part of our backroading to get to Queensland with a minimum of traffic. Always we said “We must stop.” This time we did, mainly because “the twins might enjoy these.” What we thought was just a bit of local fun and neighbourly competitiveness turns out to have links to the Dubbo Zoo, and an annual prize for the best addition to the menagerie.

These critters were chosen by the size of the verge that allowed us to pull over and photograph. There were many more.

  1. Yay! Comments are open! Hope this means you are going to relent on this. The Hot Rod Henny is fabulous. Aussies seem to have a thing with metal objects in their fields. We saw plenty driving through WA in 2003. Some very odd ones too!

  2. Comments will be open – but all my posts won’t be. Just a titillating few.

    Last weekend I went to Sculpture Bermagui on a headland looking out to Gulaga – recycling features there too, both metallic and plastic.

  3. Oh, well, some is better than none. I do find reading your posts and not being able to say anything quite frustrating. By the time I send an email I have forgotten what it was I thought!!
