Confirmed as 13th March

Been looking at routes and its about 7 1/2 hours driving. the routes is from Uxbridge onto the M4 to Barry Island then a drive up into the brecon beacons to Becon and a nice drive through the valleys, then to Abergavenny then home. What do people think of this?

Would recommend have a co-pilot for the drive as well to help navigate.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&source=s_d&sad dr=UB8+2RP&daddr=Barry,+South+Glamorgan,+UK+to:brecon+to:abergavenn y+to:UB8+2RP&hl=en&geocode=FfpeEgMdNIf4_ymzHeZXa252SDG_N3R_aYJg Og%3BFdFlEAMd2iXO_ymx39XgTARuSDE3ijr3SWAfkA%3BFR2nGAMdpEPM_ym3LzVpUiluS DHZ_ZZv1p5wmg%3BFdHIFgMdlOfR_yk7EpA65CduSDH6xiAq67XxfQ%3B&mra=ls&am p;sll=51.67704,-1.992965&sspn=1.32504,3.674927&ie=UTF8&ll=5 1.863772,-3.166122&spn=0.318868,0.617294&z=11

Link for the route on google. Think we will aim to meet up at 0800. then drive to barry and get some food and refuel the cars ready for the brecon run. i think with stopping were looking at around 12 hours in total.

can people please confirm if they are coming.

QUOTE(streetsleeper @ 1 Feb 2010, 06:51 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>thinking in march of having an m4 run maybe from west london up to Barry, one weekend if anyone is up for this?
few stops along the way to meet up and then bit of a drive in wales?

Possible dates the 13-14 march or the 20-21 march.

once we have an idea of who is attending can sort times out and possible drive in the beacons.

adam

Adam sounds like a great idea, put me down as a possible for either dates.


Never been to Barry island before.

20-21 March works for us so a tentative yes (until I have had a chance to speak to his Lordship
). Shame it's not going from Billericay tho - you could've called it the 'Gavin and Stacey run'!!

Croeso Y Gymru guy's and girls
. Always good to see fellow members coming across to Wales. If you are going to Barry Island make sure you go to the Italian ice cream parlour on the sea front. You may even see Stacey working there


Keep you're eye's peeled for Dave's Couches too. I regularly see it being driven around the valleys (I kid you not).

I'm sure that a few of us will make it to Brecon or Barry to meet up with you all.

By the way, as you're in the area, I have a Rolling Road day planned at GotBoost in Llandow on the 14th of March. Llandow is only approx. 30 - 40 minutes away from Barry, so if your intere
ed, why not pop along to meet some of the guys getting their cars on the rollers. If you want to join us, then please drop me a pm, or post to this link: http://www.focusstoc.com/forums/Rolling-Ro...-Su-t60249.html
