Travel Stories

Here are a collection of trips.

Shell Island Shenanigans It may be cold but North Wales is beautiful in Autumn
Cornwall To Say See Ya It's a long way to Cornwall, well it is if you're a saddle sore lightweight like Ren at least. There might be free food on offer so he must make the ride.
Exploring South Devon Join Sharon and Ren as they explore a corner of South Devon.
Adventure Overland Show Sep 18 Ren blags his way into The Adventure Overland Show. But there's a catch, there's always a catch.
Llangollen Bike Fest 2018 Sunshine and shameless self promotion. It's a weekend away for Ren with the Chunky Tread crew. The Llangollen Bike Fest provides the people and entertainment.
Northern Spain 2018 It's 2018 and the annual big trip takes the BAT muppets to Northern Spain.
Bank Holiday Anglesey Ren takes on Bank Holiday traffic and warm weather. How brave!
Mucking Around In Muker With the improving weather Sharon and Ren join the Chunkies for a weekend under canvas in North Yorkshire.
A Dirty Weekend In Malvern How hard can one night's camping be? This is Ren we're talking about remember. It's cold wet dirty fun.
Annie's 90th Ride Out Just because you're getting on a bit doesn't mean you can't enjoy a little gentle motorcycle adventure. It's time to celebrate Annie's 90th birthday.
Scooter Cannonball 2012 Would you choose to ride across America? On a scooter? Is there such a thing as a Scooter Cannonball? It is a strange world that we live in.
Spanish Butt Stephen takes on 2 Iron Butt rides in 2 days. France and Spain treat him to a variety of weather while Sat Nav spits its dummy out.
South Wales 2017 Will South Wales bring as much beauty and pleasure as North Wales has often done for Sharon and Ren? It's time for them to find out.
Carry On Camping - Motorbike Style PocketePete is off camping for the first time in aeons. Has he got the kit, will he survive and will there be enough to eat?
Friends And Family 2017 It's time for the dynamic muppets to head down south in search of free accommodation, free food and perhaps even a look around.
North Coast 500 2017 Sharon and Ren join a group of like minded riders to ride the North Coast 500, aka Route 500. What will the northernmost parts of Scotland offer the dynamic duo et al?
Chunking Campastrophy 2017 Chunky Tread offers a great excuse on a great weekend to explore The Dales and check out a new tent.
Soggy Sunday In Settle Both Sharon and Ren have a peculiarly wonderful day out doing battle with the weather and meeting delightful readers.
Cornwall In Winter 2017 Follow our foolish editor as he takes a short break to Cornwall to answer some important questions. Perhaps it would have been easier to just call some people who live there?
Chunky Tread Hard Nuts Xmas Do It was the Chunky Tread Hard Nuts Winter Bash this weekend. Motorcycles, merriment, laughter and music. Very bad music.

Just thought this may be of interest! I have recently returned from a 680 mile 3 day tour of Western Scotland on Honda Cub 90's with a freind of mine. Great fun, a little cold in November but to be expected, and it added to the challenge. Good quality B&B's in Scotland and nice and cheap at £20-£25 per night.
