The CW5000 is an annual challenge, in which Cycling Weekly readers set off on a quest to complete 5,000 miles over the course of the year. Each month, they're tasked with extra milestones or accomplishments - and in September - we asked our CW5000 riders to seek out the funniest, or most interesting, road names.  

Inspired by Jackass Lane in Kent - which I regularly ride past - I felt there must be plenty of other amusing names out there. After all, this is the country of memorable town names such as Shitterton, Crapstone and Wetwang.
