Title: favourite bit of road
Post by zippy on 07.03.2006 at 23:54:23

;D ok campers lets hear about your fav bits of road or fav rides out,  where it takes you or any particular direction you like goin!

                                   mine's the A470, it takes you from Llandudno near colwyn bay horth wales then snakes it way southwards for the most part. you pass thru the elan valley mid wales. its worth taking an hour out to look round.

                                   well you end up in cardiff and its a good day out.  i'm not a big motorway fan but if you live in the west mids(like me) then the M5 is not far away for a quick ride home

The road running around the East & North coast of Scotland.

Soo good I'm going to do it all over again.

Weeeell, I'm not sure at the moment. I had planned to do it when I go up for a rally in Scotland this July, but I've now got to get down to Hampshire for the weekend after so that's blown that idea. Unfortunately my diary is getting very full very quickly this year so I might have to put it off again untill next year (but a few of us are planning a trip abroad so it might not happen then either).

At the moment it keeps being put back as a "future plan"  :(

Hi everyone.

Never been to Elan Valley - shame on me - but always wanted to go.  Mike and I both have bikes but I am new biker so if anyone is heading off to the big country this summer and the weather is good (cos I dont want to get my bike wet) would you let us tag along, bearing in mind I dont go ever so fast just yet.

We would love to join in with you.

safe riding
Lyn & Mike
