McVicar. So far only you. Closer to the time I'll firm up the plans. I assume Burnham will put you at Tintern pretty early as you're only an hour and half away? 10.30 should give you time to digest your full English and pack your bike I?

Mate, if you fancy riding in with two of us (Filo443 is staying at mine Thursday night) you're welcome to join in the pre-meet fun. Route could be something like this if we're pushed for time;

or, if we have can get away early enough (10-11am) we could make it into something interesting.

Sorry mate as my right honourable friend said, we are spending the week exploring the Snowdonia 360 and other bits of Wales before finishing off with the NVM.

somehow I've even allowed myself to be convinced that camping will be a good idea too  :138: I must have been drinking too much Whiskey the night we discussed accommodation  :33:

Wish me luck!

Jonny if you or anyone else is thinking of crossing the border early, your welcome to join us on the ride up from St.Davids or somewhere else along the route.  :028:

Here's what our last day is currently looking like:

I can have a local youth send a push bike over for you... knee pads included! Just take the old knees out of them and they will be good to go. :31:

Better make sure it has stabilisers fitted too, for the ride back.
Sometimes it takes a winding road to get your head straight.
