Is the next drive out not starting further south ?
I thought there was talk of starting around Llangollen, maybe wrong, as I know Drew has already got people confirmed for it.👍

Looks like it was a great run out.
I remember from the fundraising run we did to Betws-y-Coed how good the roads and views are in Wales. Such a beautiful country

Thanks for the heads up, no issues will catch you on the next outing.

Have PM'd everyone else to confirm and request contact number.

Cheers

Another excellent day of twisty roads, superb scenery and dry weather, what a great day spent in the company of very nice people, if you were in two minds to join us you missed out big time, especially with the Pancakes and Jam Roly Poly.
There's always the next one, watch this space for details.
Parking is not a strong point😁😁

As Simon said, another great day involving Brunches and pancakes and rolly polys during the various stops. Really good day had by all i think. And more route planning and testing for may. Was a couple of nicely expected roads amd some that were a bit too busy to enjoy properly which we may need to find a work around for. Here is a sample of some of the good roads. Simons covered the parked areas already above. Will start looking at routes for next months tomorrow.......
