Last Saturday morning I met up with Bob and a friend of his Jeff (GSX-R600) at Bob’s house ready to ride down to Ross-on-Wye to meet up with Bonzo and Ray. Due to us leaving Birmingham 30 minutes later than expected we had to abandon the idea of taking the twisty scenic route and instead decided to jump onto the M42/M5 and then the M50 so that we didn’t arrive too late at the services on the A40 near Whitchurch/Symonds Yat.

After we arrived at the services and met up with Bonzo and Ray we then spent the next half hour tucking into our plates of sausage, bacons and beans we decided to have a ride down one of our favourite roads the B4521 between Ross-on-Wye and Abergavenny.

The B4521 is a really great road, full of tight turns and nice scenery and not too busy and once you get to Abergavenny. you could always stop at Abergavenny Bus station, a very popular bikers meeting place, but today we didn’t stop here we carried on along the A40 towards Brecon but turn off along the excellent A479 through Talgarth and then along the A470 until we reached Builth Wells where we stopped in the local car park.

After Builth Wells we headed out onto the A481 though Hundred House until we hit the A44 then we turned right and followed it until we stopped for petrol in Leominster, here we said our goodbyes to Bonzo and Ray as we had to get back to Birmingham early and after filling up our tanks we carried on along the A44 until we hit the M5 at Worcester, then it was just a quick dash up the M5/M42 for home.

In all a short day with only 230 miles covered but it was filled with some excellent food and some excellent roads, shame that we had to take Bonzo with us ;)

Unfortunately I didn’t take my camera (I left it at home charging the batteries as we had a family birthday party that I needed it for) and Bob’s camera decided to play up so we don’t have any pictures of today little ride.

The B4521, I'm going to have a ride over that way. I'm fairly sure I've never ridden down it.
