    Sounds like a good day out that @Selmer50mark i think I'd like to try that road myself one day soon! Maybe when I'm staying at the 'Lodge' then I haven't got the long trek home!;)

    Result that as well.......you haven't had to put your hand in your pocket for the last two weekends now!!:D

    Barton Mills - 5 Ways bike stop this afternoon. Couldn't get a pin between parked bikes, counted over 40. Several Panni's, one parked up next to me but I pretended not to look....:cool:. Several three wheelers too but I need to put on about 20 stone to sit in one of them.

    Was chatting with the steward at my local watering hole yesterday, and he’s a Matlock born and bred and was saying what great roads there are in the Derbshire Dale’s and that Matlock Bath is a bit of a biking haunt.
    Got the atlas out located where it is and it’s a doable ride from Kentshire, with the long days and hopefully better weather.
    Any locals can verify my little mates thoughts or otherwise, if it’s a any good, best times to go etc.

    Roads are great. Especially if you go off the beaten track. I'd avoid a Matlock unless you like looking at other bikes instead of riding.

    Thanks, but the spam fritters probably put the nail in the coffin, a 200 mile ride home with one of them churning around me insides will clearly end badly somewhere along the M1 :eek:

    B4391. Not far from Bala, it runs down to Ffestiniog. Its my favourite road in the UK outside of Scotland. Quite often see Top Gear filming in and around that road.
