I'll keep an eye on this thread for time. All depends on the time you leave. Im going to try and leave work at 15:30ish....maybe a bit earlier if I can.

I live at J11 M56. What route you taking down? Im assuming through mid Wales, thats what I had in mind, and according to route planner should take just under 3 hours?

You live at Jnc 11? Wow that is hardcore adventure riding, I'm amazed I've not see you there before!! ;)

I would imagine mid Wales as it is a much nicer run - depends on the weather and how people feel mate - but we can sort all that out at the junction.

Funky does not come close in describing the scale, intensity and desirability of the route but the spelling is only one letter out :)

No probs, dont hold back on waiting for me if you all want to go down earlier. My hands are tied due to work on Friday so I wont be leaving until 15:30.

The route through Mid Wales is good.....boring motorway and dual carriageway to just South of Wrexham then the nicer roads start. And the twisties start after Newtown.

So my route would be Wrexham, Oswestry, Welshpool, Newtown, Builth Wells....and thats as far as Ive been...but it cant be far after that?

From my time living in Haverfordwest - the one word that sticks in my head from the Welsh language is ARAF - it's going to be ..... interesting :)
