A trip to wales


Recommended Posts

I should have gone to Ireland this week but due to personal circumstances I couldn't go but I managed to get 4 nights in Wales. Friday was spent near Havorford West with @Gerontious, @smallfrowne and @Snod Blatter. A great little place with a pub a couple of minutes away.




The lads went onto the ferry the next day and I continued up to Aberystwyth, it's not that far so I didn't go the direct route. Quick stop for a photo just outside Tenby.




Then through the Pembrokeshire National Park






The next day I fancied a bit of a shorter riding day so I did about 3 hours around the Elan Valley. We go there quite a bit with my classic mini so it was great to be there on the bike.


This was on top of the dam that Richard Hammond got winched up in a Land Rover many years ago.








The next day was to be my last day so I'd got a 200 mile route planned from the fantastic Bikers Britain by Simon Weir. I chose the machynlleth loop which turned out to be absolutely amazing. Some of the best roads I've ever been on and pretty much deserted. The roads were so good that I didn't really stop for photos but a couple of the best roads were B4391 and A487 but the whole thing was amazing. It's worth buying the book just for that.




Back to the hotel and I put the bike in the onsite garage. A massive bonus that I didn't know about when booking. I'd highly recomend it and there was a couple of bikers there every night. https://www.richmondhotel.wales/




Being from Leicester being able to see the sea is a rare treat, the sunset was amazing to watch




The return leg was another conveluted route through the brecon beacons, stopping to see the memorial and cemertery at Aberfan, a very moving place.


I'm gutted to not have gone to Ireland with the lads but I still had an amazing few days away.

Looks like a great ride, not too dissimilar to mine from a few weeks back. I went from Malvern Hills through brecon beacons up to Rhayader for the night, explored some of elan Valley which was incredible then up past Bala Lake n through Snowdonia. Some incredible roads from brecon to Rhayader.
