As part of the last big ride of 2012 we had visited the the A483, with both Jon and Rich and tagged on an extra bit, staying on the A483 down to Bulith Wells turning left onto the A481 then left again onto the A44 before going to the cafe for dinner. Col had been talking about going there again especially the A481 section as it had been quite entertaining, twisting through the landscape and over the hills.
|A481 has some nice sections (picture from google maps)|
We turned onto the Knighton road at Pennybont and stopped to talk about the extra loop which is set to become a more regular route.
Just when we thought that for the rest of this year it was going to be only Col and me out on Sunday mornings, Jon asked if we were going out. He turned up on his GSXR to a slightly foggy morning and we headed off towards Leominster and Dom's for a coffee. He hasn't ridden his bike since our trip to Germany back in July and Col pointed out he had no road Tax, He went back home and fitted it as it had arrived a few weeks earlier and met us at he garage to fill up with petrol. His bike looked in need of some polish but the last wash it had had on the return from our road trip had removed all of the dead flies at least. It was nice to have him there with us again, he always brings a laugh to the chats we have over a coffee and we hope he is going to make it more of a regular thing again.
(Also its nice to see a blue bike in the photos)
We have 1 big ride planned for the end of October hopefully we can go to Bala or Barmouth on the coast or even do both if time and the weather lets us.
