Have a great time.

Thanks, scooter. I guess it would be doable from your place too?

Part of the Elan Valley route is the Devil's staircase - https://www.dangerousroads.org/europe/w ... -road.html. Quite a challenge but I reckon it'll be straightforward compared with the Hardknott in Cumbria.

If I could get there without going on a motorway I suppose it might be possible, although it would probably take me a week.

My luggage carrying facilities are zero so would have to forgo everything bar a toothbrush and toothpaste.

I didn’t really think through the practicalities did I?

I’m looking at other places for next year so if you come across any epic roads, let me know. Scenery and twisty bits are the order of the day.

A 50km or so bike ride today through Edinburgh and out to the Forth bridges via a scenic route. The trip takes you through some of the most affluent parts of Edinburgh. Which world famous author might need a hedge this tall to give privacy (you can still see one of the two large treehouses in her garden)!

Out for a day in North Wales. Seriously hot but some lovely roads, including the trip across Denbigh Moors (motorcycling heaven).

This picture was taken in more basic surroundings, but it's a nice comparison of red mid-weight sport/adv touring bikes...

Making hay while the sun shines my old friend.

I'm not sure how much longer before the weather changes.

Hope you enjoyed your day in North Wales earlier this week.
