July time suits me best, I've got a few things on in August. Are we planning to leave on the Friday and return on the Sunday night or Monday? I would prefer a Friday to Sunday shot. Less days off needed at work then!

Also I think we should head south, with the help of Wirralbikers we should be able to get an awesome route sorted. I vaguely remeber the roads of north wales when I picked up the mille, they where good. So I'd like to see if they're all as good! Very Happy

I can go anytime. The weekend of aug 5th is out. Mark and Jades wedding.
Not sure if fri - sun would be long enough if we're going so far south though..? Might need an extra day..

Oh aye, forgot about that.... lol

As for time, I think the Friday, Saturday and Sunday would be fine. It's only 400 miles to wales after all. Very Happy

400 boring motorway miles flattening the centre of your tyres.. It would be good to enjoy the roads on the way down. Not too fussed about the way home.

Yea that was "only 400 miles" in jest mate, obviously we wouldn't be sticking to A roads never mind motorways! Very Happy We would need to figure out the place where we're going, figure out the route, decide what "attractions" we're going to stop at and finally how long its gonna take! Personally I like roughing it, so I'm in favour of sleeping bags and tents! Having a pub dinner then camping in there backdoor! lol Very Happy

After discussing this with BigAndy it may be better to consider the following;
If we are going to Wales, it would probably be better to spend a bit longer (Fri - Mon) due to the distance. That would allow either a full day travelling down or an overnight stop on the way. If Fri - Sun would be preferable maybe we should stay a bit closer to home.. Yorkshire?

Once again I'll go with the majority, 4 days or 3 I'm not fussed Very Happy

As I said earlier, we should sort out where we are going first, then we will know how long we need. Personally I would prefer a Yorkshire trip. What is every else's view on this?

Routes

Post by G-force on Thu 16 Feb - 13:12

We can visit Hartside Top on the road down,

Friday Route

Hartside Top

Saturday Ride out to Bridlington,
Route

Accommodation still up for discussion, You can camp at Squires Cafe or we could look for Biker Friendly B&B nearby?

Because we are so close to Leeds it might be possible to have Sat night in the town?

Hartside looks good for a stop on the way down, late lunch etc. As for accomodation I'm happy with a tent.... But obviuosly everyone won't appreciate a camping mat instead of a matress after a longs days ride! So I'll have a look at B&B's. I'm well up for a night out in Leeds, it's an awesome night out! I was there years ago, hopefully its still as good! Very Happy

What about staying in Scotland? We've got some of the best roads and scenery. Inverness would be a good base - lots of good roads round about and reasonable B&Bs. Squires would be a good base with free camping but not much in the way of B&Bs.

The reason for heading south was to chase better weather Thumper, I agree, we do have better roads and scenery virtually on our doorstep but we also head to Oban and Fort William on a regular basis just as day trips. Although I've said I'm happy to go with the flow.

Plus we done a Scotland trip in 2010. Suppose we're just trying to explore a bit further a field as we go away on day trips up north etc

Having read all the comments I agree with them all - but most of all just being on the bike. Chasing the weather would be a plan but how far south do you want to go ? Graham and I did South of France a few years ao and was superb roads/scenery and weather but also did 750 odd miles in one day as we had 1 too many beers at first stop Shocked Having said that we also did Applecross in October one year and the wether was fantastic with great roads on way up an down. Also co-incided with locals having a party with BBQ and bands etc. Good time ws had. I am happy to go wherever majority decide so will go with the flow.

Well as I've said a few times before I'm happy to go with the majority. Sadly it looks like it got to be a friday to sunday shot for me as I've got hardly any holidays left this year. So how far can we get in a couple days?

I reckon it's time to get realistic with the lack of enthusiasm by most so far. I say we head north again. It's not as far to travel, the roads are better, quieter and no motorway incase any learners want to go. Should be cheaper and take less time. The only drawback is the possibility of bad weather, but you can't guarantee it in England either.
So, here's a few options.. Skye, Applecross, Inverness.
The ball's in your court now guys. Come on. Let's get this sorted. Rolling Eyes

I second that. Good night life and a perfect base for good surrounding roads. Last time I was there we stayed in B&B that let us put the bikes in the garage. I'll try to find out details.
