I want to take the missis away next weekend but where? we've done london, glasgow, birmingham, milton kynes, chester, edinburgh, cardiff, southport, an loads of others. They were all city pissed up trips, but now shes even fancying a countryside bike thing :shock: where could we go and hire bikes? (this could be retro gold for me if she likes bikes OOOOO yes) so anyone? budgets £400-500 including travel, and thats gona be public either mega bus :lol: (luv em) or train? thanks Daz

Alternatively I know of a little set of farm cottages in Wales (near cwmcarn) that are mtb friendly and less than a mile away from the epic trail there...

How about the New Forest ? You can hire bikes at Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst & Burley, it's nice and flat so she won't get pissed off with having to push her bike uphill if she doesn't ride regularly. Lymington is nice and touristy with some good resturants/hotels and Burley is quaint and picuresque with wild ponies and donkeus all over the shop.

That's why the New Forest, plenty of little towns and pubs, plus no big uphills, that was the thing that turned my wife off cycling, she's fine on the flat and cycle paths but as soon as it starts to get steep...also it's annoying to wait for someone pushing uphill and it's annoying for the pusher to see their other half not stopping for them.

Oh yeah, forget the Grifter, you want a Bomber :wink:
