Hi Tramp,

I sometimes use Best Biking Roads for ideas.

Russ,

I am thinking of doing a ride up through Wales soon, I need to see if I'm fit enough to do a bit of distance and check out my luggage situation.

I know some good back roads up to Bala/Lake Vyrnwy area, I was going to camp somewhere and then ride back the next day, I would prefer to do weekdays (quieter roads).

cheers, Bob.

Russ I know a while back I saw that RIDE and also BIKE magazines were doing features on best biking roads. You may be able to find something on the websites if they have one. If not Offas dyke is in latest issues of ABR. Bryn also put up the gpx route on here tother day. (thumbs)

Hi Russ,

Great to read that you're on the mend.

Ride to the Thee Tunns at Bishop's Castle, South Shropshire: the roads are well bendy on the way there and distinctly wobbly on the way back - don's ask me how I know this, I left the region when I was eighteen - a loooong time ago (thumbs)
