    If you wanted to do a ride out theres always the A44 to Elan Valley, about 140 miles each way, 3-4 hours round trip excluding any stop offs

    Bloody hell !! How many times have we all done that !!
    Elan valley does not even get on the Richter scale in terms of rides in Mid wales !!

    As for the A44 no discerning ****er would even ride it between Worcester and Rhayader there are so many, many better ways of gettig there !!!!!
    The A44
    Surely your not serious
    The purpose of man is to live, not exist !!
    I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them..........
    I will use my time !!

    You will have to forgive me, i've only passed my bike test 15 months and rode the A44 twice so to me it is still a new route......

    But

    I take your point, I guess its a bit like asking an oil question then



    (Another note to self........dont mention Elan Valley/A44 )

    Val.

    Definitely up for this one. we'll not be getting to site till mid evening Friday though.

    Camper van with trailer & one or two bikes, oh! and the dog. Hookup would be good but not necessary. Breakfasts for two both days plus Sat evening meal. When do you want us to divie up?
