...with lakes nestled in the valleys surrounded by the mountains of the national parks and all connected with superb motorcycling roads. This will be our second visit of the year staying in two of our favourite destinations.
The locations for this tour are two nights in a 4* award winning Country Hotel overlooking the iconic Lake Vyrnwy and two nights in a 4* Spa Hotel in Llandrindod Wells in Mid Wales. Both hotels offer excellent welsh cuisine and are ideally located for making the most of the surrounding riding routes.
We have a slightly different start to our usual format, in so far as our meeting point on day one will be at our first hotel from 4pm onwards with a welcome dinner that evening. Our ride-out the following day will take you through the Berwyn Mountains and Snowdonia National Park taking in the Lakes of Bala and Celyn before heading onto the Llyn Peninsula for lunch overlooking the Irish Sea at the foot of Yr Eifl Mountain.
Next day we head south to our next hotel in the heart of Mid Wales, riding along the southerly shore of Lake Vyrnwy and over the highest mountain pass in the north of the country, that of Bwlch Y Groes before making our way passed Tal-y-Llyn to the coastal road at Aberdovey.
Our route continues through the picturesque Elan Valley which forms part of the Cambrian Mountains and is home to rugged open landscapes, dams and reservoirs. On arrival at our next hotel there will be plenty of time to make the most of the hotel facilities before dinner that evening.
Our ride-out from this location will take us north, riding one of our favourite stretches of road to Newtown. What is not to enjoy when you have 20+ miles of sweeping corners and bends before riding into the Vale of Kerry for morning coffee at a vineyard. We continue through the Welsh Marches with an afternoon stop at Llangorse Lake in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Our tour concludes on stunning touring roads along the banks of the River Wye out towards the Welsh coastline returning inland skirting the southern reaches of the Snowdonia National Park crossing the English / Welsh border to our dispersal point in Shropshire.
