Llangollen to: Betsy-Coed and beyond

As already posted, this a great road BUT a warning: The last two times we have ridden this route (returning from Ireland), we have been pulled! The first time stopped by a road block after going through a hidden mobile radar trap - the police bike that came after us couldn't catch up (we didn't know he was there) so radioed ahead. The second time we were shadowed by an unmarked helicopter (thought we were being paranoid) and then into a hidden speed trap. We were lucky because for various reasons we got away with it, but the police are targeting this road, particularly bikes, and the use of the helicopter has been confirmed by the police, so watch out! Being in the middle of nowhere on an empty road is no excuse to these boys.


Brecon to: Hirwaun

The A470 from Brecon has already been submitted as a cracking ride. This route makes it better. After passing Pen Y Fan (bloody big mountain) and the first reservoir (Welsh water for the Midlands PLC), turn off onto the A4059 to Hirwaun. First mile uphill through Forestry, then open grazing land - the Beacons! Flat out bends, no speed interference people or boxes and nice white-painted stones alongside the road to remind you where the tarmac stops. Watch out for the sheep though (when in Wales......).


Porthmadog to: Cross foxes

You name it it's got it small narrow lanes to open straights, very good for the wake me up ride, try this at four in the morning on a midsummer outing. Be sure your bike is up for it. Mind you do not forget we are all Christians and we do not break the law Gods especially.
