Twas a nice morning yesterday so I kitted up my yellow DR350 and set off for a little 'explore'

I decide to head south so it was through the Chew Valley, up over the Mendip Hills and across the Somerset levels........

So how many different type of trails can you ride in one day?

It was cold in the morning
but once the sun came out it turned into a lovely sunny day.

Although the sun was hazy there were some good views across the levels......

Yeah, but you can't compete in the goose step, if the leg flies off you could kill someone!

Drop us a PM next time you are heading out Bob and I'll see if Im free. Later this year Im hopefully planning a round Wales trip, basically trying to follow the coast from Runcorn to Bristol doing as much off roading as I can en-route....so if all else fails I'll be down that way in the summer.

Let me know when you're doing that and if I'm free I'll meet you somewhere in Wales and ride down to Bristol.
