Leslie McCurdy was a well known local figure. Originally from Ballycastle, Leslie worked in Belfast but would regularly visit friends and relatives along the Causeway Coast. His impressive athleticism and many stunts were the stuff of local legend. These photos show Leslie riding a bike across Carrick-a-rede and performing a handstand on the bridge, but these are far from the only stunts he performed: he would regularly partake in other daring acrobatics around the area!
These photos were kindly contributed to the Uncharted Histories project by Maurice McCurdy.
