LoSW – Aberaeron

Wednesday 27th July saw the Last of the Summer Wine’s day trip to Aberaeron, on the coast a third of the way up Cardigan Bay between Newquay and Aberystwyth.

The Magnificent Seven this week were Pete, Barry T, Paul H, Allan, two, yes two Derek James and Dave P.

We left the Chepstow start point and immediately headed West to Usk enjoying good weather along a really nice lane, full of twists and turns and thence to Little Mill.  The altered road junction surprised me and the full 360 at the next roundabout South was a necessity to head North to Abergavenny.  One rider, ‘went his own way’, well he was on a Triumph…  Barry quickly scopped him up and we reunited in a bus stop / lay by on top of the hill before Aber G itself.  The slight pitter patter of light rain upon my visor came and went a couple of times but not enough to stop and don waterproofs.

We made good time reaching our first stop that was at the West End Café, situated at the West end of Llandovery and a good hearty brunch was had by all, al fresco in their walled garden and hazy sunshine.

After Llandovery basically there ate no straight roads, It’s a biker’s delight and so we did delight in the twists turns, bryns & cwms (hills & valleys) of West Wales.

A great day out with the lads

My Garmin Zumo registered 240 miles and one of our riders, from Worcs, clocked up 330 miles return – Well done everyone.

Ride Safe and prosper !
Cheers Pete
