    After Billz & Mozz's sterling work on the 6th April, and the brilliant company, I am planning a run around North Wales, this takes in most of the best roads and scenery that North Wales has to offer (Including the EVO) and a run around the Great Orm (Small Toll Charge), Over the Menai Bridge into Anglesey and over the Britannia Bridge off the Island.
    Register your interest and I will make it happen, Sunday 14th September is confirmed This is a full day 200+ miles, but this can be shortened to suit.
    Lunch stop at: Tafyrn Ty Gwyn In Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch:hungover:

    Jim, put me down as interested if you change the date. Unfortunately we can't make the 7th as we'll be returning from a 3 week French holiday. OK for the 14th, 21st, 28th….

    Dave If the weather is right there is nothing to beat the roads and the scenery in the UK.

    Agreed Jim, we've done some great drives when the weather is good and it's even better in the week when there's not so much traffic about.

    I wont know where I am! and the views will be spectacular;)

    A-Meeting Point (Costa Coffee + Petrol Station)
    B-Coffee Toilet Break
    F-Lunch Stop
    H-Coffee Toilet Break

    Description of the route:

    Between A & B Fantastic scenery, Great Picture Opportunity (you can see my house from here)
    Between B & C the EVO Triangle, the best driving road in the UK Bar None (In My Opinion)
    D- Great Orm Scenic route-Fantastic scenery, Great Picture Opportunity
    Between G & H Through the Llanberis pass (you will think your in the Alps) Spectacular Scenery Fantastic High Speed Road from Trawsfynydd to Bala (Traffic dependant but plenty of overtaking places) and loads of little used roads if the traffic becomes to heavy

    H-to Lake Vyrnwy (time permitting) a spectacular breath taking scenic road, the road stretches away in the distance as it goes up the mountain.

    Not done one of my cruises? you don't know what you are missing..It will bring tears to your eyes won't it Duncan!
