It's beautiful, lots of nice beaches, surprisingly hilly and rural in the middle, and a pleasingly high density of pubs :-bd

Now you’re talking V, after the embarrassing pub total on the WRT I need to make up the numbers :-bd

Just been talking to Mike and this is a definite 'goer'. More details nearer the time but put the date in your filofax.

Expect a nice laid-back ride with plenty of time for ice cream, skinny dipping and talking bollox. I reckon as group size goes, we probably don't want more than 12 as a maximum.

I'll have to check with the boss tonight, I'm part way through a bathroom renovation, but provided we have a flushing toilet by then I'm a strong possible for the sneaky wild camp and the lift, I could ride from home and come over on the ferry as a foot passenger.

Good luck, it'll take as long to get from the M4 to the Gower on a sunny weekend!!
Unfortunately I'm working otherwise I'd be there. As a taster for you here's a short film by our very own Mr Barrington:

We go out into the hills to lose ourselves, not to get lost. You are only lost if you need to be somewhere else and if you really need to be somewhere else then you're probably in the wrong place to begin with.

Right then, by my reckoning we have the following interested parties:

Me
Mike
Verena
Karl
Burty
Andy (Chicken Legs)
Stu (MAM)
Steve (Big Dummy)
Rich
David (Asposium)
Sean
Mart
Matt C
Andy (reverse)
Jay
Jase (really, who knows)

If those folk can just raise their hand to confirm or deny their presence asap, that'd be lovely :-bd
