Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

From memory there are three gates to open and close after you, but a good opportunity for a photo whilst doing so.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

We were not dissapointed with this road that links Trawsfyndd to Llanuwchllyn. A great road passing through a remote and rugged landscape. An extra bonus, a nice river for another spot of fishing on the way through.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

I had not forgotten about the wee single track road that we had to miss out on the Friday evening due to the weather closing in, so that was to be our next area to explore, so we made our way to Bala, stopped at the National White Water Centre for a coffee and watched the activities on the river 201...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

Made my way back down to Church Stretton and checked out Carding Mill Valley, again another lovely spot - but i imagine would tend to get quite busy at times. 20190713_091218.jpg 20190713_091516.jpg So met up with Jon, had a catch up over coffee and Jon who lives in the Kidderminister area, took the...

Saturday morning, and another early morning fishing session resulted in three more Brown Trout. 20190713_064019.jpg Then a spot of breakfast and everything packed away and on the bike. I had an hour to kill so explored a few single track roads in the area, before making my way back up over the big h...

Soon I had settled in for the night on a nice pitch beside a small river.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

So, time to look for a campsite. I had already looked on google maps and knew there was a couple in the area behind a large hill behind the town, so off I went up the Burway Road, and what a road it was, very steep with a big drop off on the right (no barriers for quite a bit of it). Stopped at the ...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

So, after I had a good look around, a coffee and a massive white chocolate and raspberry bun, it was time for me to hit the road again. I was using the weekend as a chance to meet up with an old friend whom I had not seen in 28 years. So one of the rare occasions that i take the satnav out and I set...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

We made our way down to the area where all the bike related stalls, major bike brands, beer tent. and food.area was.
