Got away on Monday (bank holiday) for a spin on our photographic rally with a mate. What a super day, no rain and temp up in the 15-17 degree range. Everybody and their dog was out, it just seemed like summer came on like a switch and everybody was ready, including campers and caravans of course.
First stop was Richill outside Armagh city and then on northward on the A29 through Cookstown, Tobermore and left on to the A6 up the Glenshane pass to Dungiven, then the B68 to Limavady and the B69/A2 up to Magilligan point which is always beautiful but especially so with the weather. Across the top of the country then ,through the Northwest 200 area and on to Ballycastle and out to the extremes of Benmore head. Definite Adventure bike territory! A lady in biker gear stood at a park area and we stopped to say hello, she declared her partner had gone on alone on a GS1200 as she was too scared on the gravel roads with the steepest in/declines. She was correct, I saw the TC light flashing for the first time on the declines. But the views were super (its a close point to Scotland).
South then on the A2/A43 through the glens of Antrim, its been a while since I have been through here and forgot its beauty. A few motorways to finish off closer to home. 335 miles and about 45mpg as it was leisurely riding enjoying the views.
Over to England for the WSB in Donnington this month, We are going up to the lake district first, then across to the peaks to the cat and fiddle, on the way to Donnington.
Any must ride roads around the lake district you can recommend would be greatly apprec. Thanks
