    England may have won the Cricket World Cup on Sunday, but we've got the steepest street in the world!

    Talk about kicking a man when he's down. They don't deserve this.

    I spent a week in Harlech once and spent a lot of time walking up and down that thing. It is more like a water slide with no water on it

    There's a street near here that would give it a run for its money. I'm getting my protractor out.

    There's a few streets in Red Hill, brisso that are short and steep.... a gf at the time lived on one that ran off Enoggera terrace toward town..

    we used to go to Cochrane street as kids and jump our cars and bikes on a hilltop with a little bump at the top....the down hill side had grooves from all the car bits that bottomed out on landing....

    I once took a new gf over the place on my guzzi mk1... just slow enough to top the suspension out for a bit of a thrill, I thought... launched it about 2 feet off the road for a car length or so...down in the dip I looked over my shoulder at her face, how was that? I asked... with a wild glee in her eyes she said, do it again... so I did a u turn went back around and did another similar jump.... good fun...:D

    I think it has those traffic calming islands on the approach now....:rolleyes:

    Gwynnedd is badass. I saw teenage girls climbing Mt Snowdon in flipflops -- in early March.

    Go Wales!
