North London visit South West Wales.
On the weekend of 29th April to 2nd May the Branch went away for three nights based in Carmarthen and staying in the very nice Royal Ivy Bush Hotel.
There were eleven of us on eight fine machines and our route there and back was principally the A40 with a cut off to Gloucester and a Ride through the lovely Forest of Dean on the A4136 to Monmouth and then via Llandovery and Brecon.
On the Saturday our route was mainly a touristy one with a pleasant ride encompassing Amroth, Saundersfoot, Tenby and through to St David’s for lunch. We then went to Cardigan and took a direct route back via Newcastle Emlyn. This was a lovely road where we had a stop at Cenarth Falls.
On the Sunday it was more about the Riding, though it was a bit damp. We went back to Cardigan and up to Aberystwyth for a seafront stop. We then went to Rhyadar and past the edge of Elan Valley to the Two Hoots cafe at Devils Bridge, before a great route back through Lampeter.
A great long weekend where we all enjoyed the food, riding and the company.
