Skirting the edge last leg(s)

Well its done I am back home now after 20 days in the saddle of the cube. The last leg was the run from Pendine sands back to the M48 services. I think the sun and the fact that it was sunny made the last leg one of the most...

Skirting the edge leg 19

This leg is Fishguard to Pendine sands, in essence the Pembrokeshire coast in a day. One day would be justice to the national park as indeed have any of the l egs in reality, to each of there respective locations. But the job here is to skirt the coast not...

Skirting the edge leg 18

This leg (a day late sorry) was Llandudno to Fishguard, which I thought was going to a be a long day in the seat, was long but not as tiring as I imagined. The sun was out and I suspect that had lots to do with it. First things first...

Skirting the edge leg 17
