They're building the road out here, which means, for the time being, a lot of sand.

Into which big heavy trucks drive, one after another, and get stuck, one after another.

Sometimes it's good to be on a bike.


  1. It might help if the trucker bloke in the red one bought new tyres! They look abit below the legal limit to me.

  2. There's lots of foot prints between the trucks they either been playing football. Or have been stuck for a long time, should have built a proper road. What fools driving about on a golf course and getting stuck in bunker.
