This newest section of the site has been set up to make the posts relating to Motorcycling and Touring easily accessible without overwhelming the first page. And let’s be honest Bikes should have their own section anyway. Newest info and links will be added to the top of the lists. All posts will be added to the site as usual, just the bike stuff will be grouped here for easier referencing. The most recent posts will be at the top so make sure you keep scrolling!
Wales in Winter : Wales in a Weekend :
In February 2017 I took on the AdventureBikeRider Wales in a Weekend Route. Starting South of Brecon and heading north I would take in the Beacons then head into Snowdownia National Park before crossing into England from North Wales and returning back to Northern Ireland on an overnight ferry. All of this would be done in a mere three days. If you lived close enough to the starting point this is a great route that can easily be done in 2 days – even in winter!

A complete circuit of the Island of Ireland in 24hrs. Is it possible? How difficult is it? Why?

Scotland’s North Coast 500 : NC500 : Ride Report :
In the Summer of 2016 I took on another European coastal route : Scotland’s NC500 :
UPDATE : Get the GPX File for the Scottish North Coast 500 Route right here :
Disclaimer : Having completed the Wild Atlantic Way in under a week I thought a reasonable time period to complete the North Coast 500 would be two days. However you will notice that this ride report actually covers four days – so what’s that about? Well it’s simply about travel. One day to get to the start and one day takes me home. So really it’s a four day trip to Scotland, during which I completed the NC500 in two.
