I went and rode my bike up on High Street on Monday and it reminded me of this scenic pee from up there back in 2013. I think this was taken by Rosie and while it looks like I’m weeing at great height into Haweswater below there is, fortunately, a big old gap between me and it. I don’t think I can force out a mile long stream….
Not sure if you’ll have seen Top Gear last night but it starred a pretty bold scenic pee from Richard Hammond, seen here relieving himself on Wolf Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Not much of a stream, but I don’t think scenic peeing is really pre-watershed material so I’m sure they did the best they could. He was also worried about what would happen if a bear came along whilst he was doing it, a valid point- be careful of bears when you have your winkie out.
Bit of a sad one this week- another avalanche claimed a victim, Max Norman, in Torridon over the weekend, and this week’s scenic pee is posted in his memory. It makes sense, then, for it to star our beloved founder Chris in this textbook display of an exemplary stream in spiffing scenery in the French Alps which was taken by Huw Oliver while they were working for Bike Village, who apparently do some pretty sweet holidays out there.
Stay safe in those lovely mountains everyone!
An exciting start to the year on scenicpees- a submission from the continent. This is Bernhardt, who took this photo, which, by the way for a first time submission is perfect- good stream etc., last winter in the Slovenian alps near the border to Austria. Looks good, and a good way to brace yourself for the impending weather doom coming to the UK later this week.
2015 sees a bold new format on scenicpees.com- video. Here’s something I cobbled together after it snowed over the Christmas holidays.
You’ll notice the bit at the end about raising money for Mountain Rescue at the Strathpuffer. This takes place on January the 17th and I will be racing as Chris Bell Racing again in memory of the founder of scenicpees.com. If you can spare anything at all please visit the link below-
This week’s submission is from Pete Scullion, following on from my own urination on a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Jurassic Coast back in August.
I’ll let him explain-
“Here’s a solid shot of me urinating atop La Cuchita, some 1950m above sea level, on the island of Tenerife.
That gurt mountain in the background is Pico del Teide, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which must get me bonus points! :-)”
