Returning FulGaz contributor, John Bennett has been busy capturing some fun rides from the Welsh border.
John filmed these on bright, clear summer days and you can’t see a cloud in the sky. You’ll enjoy rolling hills, quiet villages and a few climbs to keep you on your toes.
Our recommendation from the collection this week is Stiperstones. It will take you on a journey through lush green hills studded with golden flowers and crosses back and forth on the England/Wales border. Don’t worry, you won’t need a passport. 😉
Find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz app or by searching Bennett.
Offa’s Dyke is the legendary barrier built by an Anglo-Saxon King to keep out the Welsh! Now, it’s a popular area with outdoor enthusiasts drawn to the region for its scenery. Our ride takes us up onto the Kerry Ridgeway, an ancient drover’s route which crosses Offa’s Dyke before ending in Bishop’s Castle, a typically pretty Shropshire town renowned for its foodie and art scene. Watch out for that final dig though!More Info
