    Hi everyone

    So, it looks like its going to be a good weekend and we are looking for a good ride out and somewhere new would be good!  We often seem to end up doing the same rides with the same cafes at the end lol.

    What can anybody recommend bearing in mind our starting point is Derby but we have a whole day ?

    Thank you in anticipation  :015:

    Hey ticketyboo,

    Well ... not sure where you normally go or if you've been here but I'd recommend Bronllys in mid wales - aiming for Honey cafe... get there via Shrewsbury and Knighton so you can come down to it from the North then go back via Hereford/Worcester/Stratford. 132ish miles there - 3hrs 40min and 140ish back - 4 hours.

    if Susie wasn't working this weekend we'd have met you there.

    Hi Mark

    I'm liking the sound of that .. googled it and that café looks fabulous!  And it's highly unreasonable of Susie to be working this weekend  :006: lol

    Can you give me any further info on a suggested route at all ish kind of maybe ?  :152:

    Thanks

    well difficult for me to say as I come up from the Portsmouth area.... may be best to put it in satnav with waypoints for Shrewsbury, castle caereinion, Kinghton avoiding motorways and see what it gives you. Shrewsbury down will be lovely but cant speak about the route to Shrewsbury I'm afraid.

    have fun.

    Llanberris... boring but nice A5 through the pass, when you come to the end turn right, follow it down past the lakes. In the village go straight on and not over the bridge to Caernarfon.Left down the main drag, right towards Harlech, head for Machynlleth, coming out of the town turn right onto mountain road, head toward Newtown, then right towards craven arms, much wenlock and m54 home...pick a cafe of your choice en route. Sorted :001:
