The destination for our September 20th ride weekend is now decided and the hotel arranged at the Gwesty Ty Newydd, Aberdaron, Pwllheli, Gwynedd. It is close to the end of the Llyn Peninsular in the village of Aberdaron, on the west Wales coast. It’s a beautiful spot and the chosen hotel has a view directly onto the beach.
We will be travelling on Saturday 20th September through Yorkshire, south to Derbyshire, west to Wales and then returning the Sunday after, gathering for a hearty dinner at the hotel the evening before and a splendid Welsh breakfast the next morning, using different roads whenever possible. The final route has yet to be decided, so if anyone has any requests or suggestions all will be considered.
The ride will be to the usual HAB rules using the drop off system. No one should get lost, but everyone will be provided with full itinerary including details of coffee and lunch stops with addresses and post codes.
The hotel has given us a special rate of £45 per person including breakfast. To book your hotel room for Saturday 20th September I suggest you telephone them on 01758 760207 quote Harrogate Advanced Bikes or my name. The hotel has 13 rooms on two sites very close together. Please share a room with a pal if you can, so that as many of us as possible can come on the run. If numbers exceed the hotels capacity there is another hotel across the road, The Ship Inn Hotel, which has rooms currently available, but no special rates arranged.
The hotel does not have a car park. There is a National Trust car park a few yards away which is very suitable. The village is small and I do not believe you should be worried about parking your pride and joy there. Those of a nervous disposition should chain their bikes together and, if really concerned, the hotel has limited secure parking at Pretoria the annex building.
