Gary Northeast’s meditation on a local run. In Wales.
There’s a road I quite often go out of my way to ride not far from where I live here in Mid-Wales. The bit I ride is not a very long piece of road, just about seven miles in all, but in those seven short miles it brings together in one place many of the things I most love about motorcycling.
It begins in a small hamlet of a few houses and scattered along its length are another three settlements with a small village at the end. There are a couple of posted speed limits along the way so consequently no really long stretches to blast down at high speed.
