Like a dick, I had a moment of madness last year and hung up my bike boots, sold my bike along with my GPS with all the routes on it!!!!!!

I now have new wheels again, so need some routes, Cant even find them on my PC!!!!!

So all you kind chaps that emailed me the Welsh routes around Chirk/Llangollen area, would you be able to email me those routes again, and tell me what software I need to view them. Was it Memory map?
There was a great route starting at Pentrafolas, that included the Grolsch Lane!!

Thanks very much.

Peter

peter LOL

i posted the link to shjow the lane on the OS map in my previous post.

Personally i dont think its that bad, you just need to attack in the right frame of mind and be fit but there are harder lanes out there, the motorway, bonkers gully, motel hill spring to mind

The hill that ktm450awyeah used to do before they fenced it off was a ferkin steep climb which needed alot of committment.

Out of all the lanes i've done motel hill is still one of the hardest you'll ever do, click on the link below

i will add this is at the top of the climb after all the hard stuff but a tree had fallen down "ahem" may have been placed at the right point "cough cough" to make it a bit more interesting for the rider ;)

Hope you dont mind me posting one of my Vids up, weve got a small club based in South Wales, and have a forum..southwalestrailriders (hope its ok to mention it) only been going about six months, me and my mate got kicked off quite a well known forum and started our own one up, bit rough round the edges but trying to establish a decent froum for anyone to join and come out with us and ride outs, dont know many lanes in the North, but we have quite extensive knowledge of the south and mid wales lanes.

Here's one of our typical Sundays out...please feel free to visit, and hope to see some of you one day..Oh, must of us are Orange...

Like when you fell off 4 times going up Ladybower, Hollinsclough and Tenterhill that brought a sweat on for you picking up that barge of yours
