Being new to the bike thing (previously driving only to get somewhere) I would appreciate any recommendations of nice roads/scenery or routes I can try. I'm in Richmond, Surrey so anywhere South East or even South West would be helpful.
If the weather tomorrow is like it is now sunny/cloudy with no rain, I will probably be taking a meander down to my Gran's for about 1/2 hour, to drop off some stuff to my brother, and then on to Portsdown just above Portsmouth, for a coffee/burger.
I plan to avoid the A3 by going down through Haselmere etc.
Not sure what way I will come back up, but again will probably be the "scenic route".
If you fancy riding along, or anyone else, let me know and we can arrange to meet up - possibly Burger King/Halfords/B&Q/Hombase just off the A3 in Guildford.
If you fancy a bit of a blast and a couple of days away, head this way, take the Wye Valley road from Chepstow up to Monmouth, then towards Abergavenny, Brecon Beacons ending up in Aberyswyth (?) via Devils Bridge.
Fantastic roads...it's the only thing that keeps me here in Wales !
