Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

D is for Dam. My target was the Derwent Dam where 617 practiced their precision bombing. Quite astounding really. The top of the pines must be 150 feet above the water and they fly in at 60 feet. Remarkable. Anyway my route took me up to Longnor. That road from the A53 to Longnor is a superb twisty ...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Thanks for that Sprinster. I may just do them both - it would be a nice 100 mile round trip. A good day so far bike passed its MOT this morning so despite a crap weather forecast went for Chester - County capital and then Manchester - Government regional capital, powerhouse of the North and Garden ...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Letter. C. For regional capital next. I am still unsure what is meant by this. Reading through the main A to Z post, the intention was for that to be London Glasgow Cardiff Belfast I think. However I notice a distinct lack of Capitals in the entries so far. My original thought was that it was the EU...

Re: Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Thanks both BB. Went on holiday last July and came back worse than when I went. By the time i got my legs working again it was new year. Time flies when you are having fun. Sprinster - you need to think laterally. There are over 150 international borders in the UK. Basically every international airp...

Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Thanks Al. Been in the family for over 17 years. :) Hit the B for Blue Flag Beach today - specifically Wallasey Beach which was granted blue flag status this year. Avoiding motorways but letting satnav lady guide me. Not the best idea she ever had. Even the mandatory ice cream was lovely from the Wi...

Martyn's 2nd feeble ABR challenge

Never did get last years challenge completed, in fact I barely got past just started but it was fun. So this year I'm going to try again. Just to make things a bit harder, I will attempt the A to Z challenge alphabetically with a return to start after each letter. With that in mind, A for aerodrome ...
