New Ponderosa Plan

A few of the lads have been having chats about possible rideout routes, so I thought it might be worth giving a fresh start to the Ponderosa Rideout Plan (that never was! :p). Here's what started it - and I reckon it's a really good start, too (y)

Could meet Ponderosa then head Corwen - Snowdonia loop- head to Chirk pick up A5 then A483 for north and south participants to head home. doable in a day

Thats not a bad little route, you could Aberystwyth to it. At Newtown, on the A483, bear right and follow A470, then A44 to Aber then north to Machynllyth and back through Bala to A5.
Yeahhh-yeah, I know Wales is still "closed", but with the loosening of the "driving" restrictions, hopefully the border barriers will come down and it might be better if we solidify our plans now, rather than worrying about the almost inevitable rush when we're given the get-go.

Have a look at what Jeffa and Danbow have contributed and if you've got anything constructive and positive to add, please do so. If you're definitely up for the rideout, just PM me and I'll add your name to this post so the list of attendees will always be visible at the top of the thread.

Let's go, lads.

Let's get ready to ride! :aaaaa:

I'm up for that(y)

Providing work permits!

I restart on a night shift Sunday after 6 week furlough, but on reduced days and a roster which varies each week with 48hrs notice of shifts.

I'm definately up for it but work shifts so it's dependent on which date we choose.

I'll start mapping out a route on google then I'll add it.

I'm waiting until DA has posted another 3 or 4 threads organising a trip to the Ponderosa- then I'll decide which one I'm going on. :confused::D

Oh! Yes it is! That's not what it showed me!! It was a straight run from Welshpool to Ponderosa!

Stupid Google!

I have to inform you lads the police are still taking a very dim view of anyone entering Wales from England on a Motorbike. I speak from experience. I aint going till the border opens. Sorry to piss on yer chips.
