Unlike other sporting events involving cheese, the Shaftesbury Cheese Race involves running up the hill with a cheese!

I think the bit you probably didn't want to show may have given it away

A Gundle Carrier Bike perhaps

:-D That's the one, I rode the damned thing all over Birmingham collecting parts from the various dealerships for the workshop, one day had a huge Wolseley flywheel in the basket, couldn't stop at the bottom of a hill and nearly ran over a cop on point duty.

.....Hasn't met the reserve yet, but if it ends up going for not much more then £5,600, then someone is going to get a very nice van for the money. Delivery to Portsmouth Ferry Port in with the successful bid price according to the blurb, and comes with French Control Technique and a 1600 petrol engine that has done 114,000kms which starts first time and "runs perfectly" .

...nice to see the good old English adverb being used proper :!: in an e-bay advert
