Llangollen

By Andy Gray

Home to Llangollen - 274 miles.

I’m on me holidays ??

Long day in the saddle today after next to no sleep last night, worrying about what I’d forgotten to pack!

After the obligatory boring couple of hours on the motorway, I ended up in Chepstow to follow an ABR magazine route that parallels Offa’s Dyke and long distance path. Started following the Wye valley before going through the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Mainly on very small roads, occasionally the word road was an exaggeration.

Stopped for breakfast/lunch at the Half Moon Inn just past Llanthony Priory where Lee from Tour-a-Taff has shown me before. Seems to be an ideal location for a club camp as the pub is now run by a couple of bikers.

Then carried on heading north, which will hopefully be the theme for the next week or two, weather permitting ????

Bypassed the last part of the route as I was getting tired and time was marching on. Not before going through a little village called Discoed ????????

I’d recommend the route if you’re heading up or down Wales, have plenty of time and like small roads & tracks.

Headed directly for Llangollen but still managed to get lost and then struggled to find the supermarket.

Llangollen Andy starts his trip to Scotland... by going to Wales! It is a long way from London Village to The Highlands though, give the man a break.
Friends And Finally Scotland Day 2 and 3 of Andy's Scottish expedition - and he's only just reached the borders. He's having way too much fun and should be focused on heading North.
Bad Weather, Brilliant Roads Andy's first proper ride into Scotland is proving to be a cracker even if the weather is dire.
