Back roads of Wales and the Cambrian Mountains 10/11 July

Postby Monty » 28 May 2021, 16:46

Saturday and Sunday July 10th/11th

Who fancies a few days in the Welsh Mountains. A roads, B roads, and lots of little naggery mountain passes with incredible views (some may contain grit and sand, but definitely not off road)

There's a really good mix of fast flowing B roads in mid Wales with very little traffic and practically no Police.

Free digs Saturday night, at the Hayloft near the Mach Loop. Can sleep 5, 6 if one of you is female and has working pulse!

Mostly Hawk training jets in threes this week and a couple of single props.

We found this while we were down there last week.

It's in the field next door to the house and next to a really deep plunge pool in the river. It's a demo sauna by a local company and they use it to do demos for prospective customers.

Now if only we had some prospective customers visiting the area on the the Saturday night ;)

The pub isn't far away either!

I'm going to have to drop out. I've no idea if my MV is going to be ready for next week. Even if it is I'm not sure I want to be so far from home when I'm effectively test riding it after having both clutches worked on.

I strongly suspect that the speeds and routes Monty likes rule out the Honda Oil Tanker. (lol)

Sorry but I thought it best to give an early heads up.
