I caught this on BBC2 tonight. Guy Martin style biker and car stuff. Very enjoyable.

I saw it too. Interesting lift bridge. I wonder when Lewstuff will get its 3rd crossing!

This programme is based in Poole down here in Dorset. The shop in question is just off the Quay, and I've yet to find it. Every Tuesday evening between Spring and Autumn, they have Bike Night where up to about 3,000 bikes attend. Karen and I have regularly attended it, and it just has to be seen to be believed. I think the record for the number of bikes attended is around the 4,000 mark, and we',ve been down there when it's been rammed. It's a great weekly event with a real mix of bikes, even trikes etc, and the shop where this programme is based (which has a cafe) does really well out the nights.

Yeah, very interesting bridge indeed, and very much like Somerleyton Bridge too.

I hope it didn't have the annoyingly quiet low voiced narrator that Guy Martins progs seem to use, why they chose someone that can barely be heard by lots of people is beyond me.
