Spent a lovely peaceful weekend around Watford’s Cassiobury park. It’s a lovely park and well used by the locals. There are some very pleasant walks through the Whippendell woods. The woods are to be found to the west of the canal, opposite the park.

Came across a lovely old motorbike and sidecar outfit while out walking over the weekend, see photos below.

Interesting old motorbike and sidecar ‘outfit’. So nice to see it still in use

UPDATE: Thanks to info from the canal world forum, it turns out the 'outfit' is:

"It's a Russian Ural (or variant) 1970-71, from the plate (they're still made and look just as old)"
