Myself and another RSV riding lady are heading to mid-Wales for the weekend in August, Fri 21st-Sun 23rd. 

Staying near Oswestry and will be going on a rideout on the Saturday, thinking Welshpool, Newtown, Builth Wells then over to Aberystwyth, up to Bala, Horseshoe Pass then home to Oswestry again.

Anyone want to join us? Smile

Ah cool :) I've put it up on the Facebook group and there's a few takers already.

Staying in a "nice" little place in Llanymynech...certainly not the Ritz but it's just a bed for the night after all Big smile

I'm hoping to rope some people in to lead and be back maker if you're interested - local road knowledge would be good Wink

I'll be arriving back from holiday that Fri night so I might be free for at least some of the w/end,I'll probably be desperate to get out for a ride by then.

Just been informed by the misses that she's working on the Saturday so I'll have the kids. If you're still around on the Sunday I'll be out. That's if Kwakas are allowed of course! 😆

Oh really? That would be great! Clap Thank you!

Route is a bit sketchy as I know whereabouts I want to go but I don't know the best roads, might bend your ear about it! I'd rather not lead to be honest, bit too much pressure for me Ouch Start time isn't set in stone either, 10 is probably a good time to start I guess!

Literally don't have any plans as of yet! However long it takes to get from where we're staying to Newtown I guess lol!

I'd prefer someone else leading as it's been 6 years since I rode on the roads and I was only on a 125 LOL

The main places I'd like to do are on my first message, I just don't know which exact roads are best Cry

A483 will take you straight to newtown thats direct route. if you want to meet in the bike dealer its on left hand side opposite mcdonalds after set of lights. if you want to go builth wells, you can either take the A483 to cross gates (mega caff there lol), llandrindod wells and then builth (good burger king there!), nice twisty road. or you can go thru newtown, llanidloes, rhayader, to builth. thats more of main road, A470

Hows this look for a rough draft of the route?

How about starting a bit earlier and stretching that route to include the Brennig run from the Ponderosa to the Sportsmans Arms and back?

Seems a shame to come all that way and miss out on that.

Just looked on a map - which way round? Through Denbigh and Ruthin or through Corwen? I don't know the roads at all round there and if there's 20-30 bikes turning up, I'll have to factor in the easiest way to keep the group together. 

And don't think we'll be able to start earlier than 10am, people are travelling from miles away to make it as it is! 

You could always lead for us Ian G Embarrassed
