A terrific road set in beautiful Welsh countryside. A combination of wide sweeping bends and tight demanding hairpins. Not recommended for Harley's or other fat boys.!
Start at Chepstow and head down the towards the Wye Vally (another good road). Just outside Chepstow turn left onto the B4235. This roed is well twisty and much less busy than the wye vally, most of the bends are a bit blind and under trees, so take care. When you get to the A472 turn right into Usk. In the centre of the town turn right onto the B4598. This is another quite twisty road. Be careful of the girder bridge which gets very slippy in the wet. This road takes you to Abergavenny which has a Biker's cafe in the Bus Station. This is not the fastest road but it will test your riding abilities.
Circular Route is this, pick it up anywhere you fancy, we start from Shrewsbury, follow A5 north up to Llangollen, loads of fast straights then into islands, test out the brakes, from llangollen follow signposts for Bala and from Bala head for Betsy-coed, when you see signs for doglellau follow them, full of nice sweeping turns and the odd one to try and catch you out, a couple of tight ones so be careful they dont catch you out (it could be a long way down).From doglellau you carry on up to Welshpool (usually a bit of traffic but good fun) from there follow signs to shrewsbury. 2 1/2 hours with fag breaks. Suits all riders Beautiful country to look at if your chillin or beautiful tarmac if your not. P.s If time permits head for Betsy-coed loads of roads round there are ace fun.
