Here’s another hand rail in Newcastle. I’ve seen this one loads of times before and although there’s probably no way on earth a rider could actually hit it, I just think it looks pretty cool.
For a start, there are a pair of lamp posts at the bottom just waiting for contact. Then, unless the rider only the bottom section, the (two) corners at the top are too sharp. And finally there’s the fact that the drop to the side of the stairs is really high…
Or… could you gap the top section (all of it? or just the stair part using the bush as a run-in?) and 50-50 the bottom kink, narrowly avoiding the posts?
No way 🙂
