I think you can contact the Humber Bridge control and see if they can offer any advice, maybe get a picture taken on one of their cameras on the bridge?

lou im sure some people will have spare seats!
what there t do on't car!?

and yeah it would be a rather good charity idea.
just need t' find a route and what not.
idea's are welcome :lol: lol

aye new mini's are welcome dont see why not lol.


jsut a respray and crashed it last nov so a bit of a dent to get ridof from the back end... couple of spots of surface rust nothing major at all just want him sprucing up a little.... but waiting for funds to afford to do it is the main issue at the mo :D

there are a lot of pretty decent roads around there on both sides of the bridge.... and there is a pub practically under it which would probably be a good place to meet before or after, i took mine there a while back to get some photos :D

You'd want 300-350 Minis to fill the centre span - 1410m


470 mini's bumper to bumper...

Is it 4 lanes total?

Was thinking we could just hog the whole bridge,a and the lead cars could conveniently break down...
Get the news involved, tell em to bring a chopper...

wonder how difficult it would be to get the bridge closed for us?

Would be one EPIC picture!

get themoney to fix it then!
how bad is it? what you need, may be able t help, dad's a panel beater and got garage and what not :lol:
haha.

well ther's the look out point not far from it either with quite alot of room for parking so thats possible too.

as for closing the bridge down well im not sure, but they close a lane for some biking event a while back so im sure summin could be arranged?

ill be over fromm leeds ish so will be on't m62 all way from the m1/m62 junction so if thers any people coming from further that way im sure we can find a meeting place on that route too.

idea's will be muchly appreaciated :D

which end would most of you lot be on? there's a place just under the bridge known as the point, fairly big carpark, would be a good meeting point if most people are getting to the bridge from that end, and you can get straight onto the bridge from there

yeah thats what i ment ^^ lol.
used to chill up there for abit after i dropped mate off at his birds lol.
not sure as the tolls are on the north side of the bridge so unless we do like a circuit from there all way round and to end we go accross over the bridge from the south side?
