No road sign for this,




Found this village on the ride yesterday. Spelt with a 'c' not a 'k' but hope it's OK?

Little deviation:

Can't get more 'dodgy' than that.

Anyone in or near Didcot should get their bike underneath the signs a get a photo put up.   :thumb:

Added the real ones (no Strom, no credit) from Barbel Mick and User650.

We should get this restarted (including me!) and get more crossed off  :thumb:

Martin, as I am a traitor can I get a credit if I have a picture of a Strom  in the image? Or if my bike has a forum sticker in shot would this be satisfactory?
